Organized Labor involvement
in the Tampa Bay area

Organized labor in the building trades has been involved in the Tampa Bay Area for over 100 years. We represent over 10,000 households locally as well as over 400 separate construction establishments. Our people are licensed, highly skilled, and qualified to perform any construction project anywhere. To assure this quality control we invest over 1,000,000 a year in upgrading and training our people to serve our community well. We pay property taxes on property valued at over one-half a billion dollars locally. This does not include over five thousand retired members' households in the immediate Tampa Bay Area.

We are proud of our building trades heritage and our community
We want to continue to make the Tampa Bay area
 a viable place to live and raise our families
 and we will continue to do our part for all working people.
