The New York State Laborers' Union represents over 40,000 members employed in the construction industry and other fields throughout the state.
Our members are organized into more than 36 local unions and 5 district councils. We are a proud affiliate of the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA).
Construction Career Days is the construction industry's primary means of communicating important employment information to high school students. Events have grown in popularity and generated helpful partnerships that in conjunction with a grant for the New York State Department of Transportation resulted in the events being expanded to even more locations across the state.
Each event varies from one to two days and is a hands-on demonstration designed to introduce youth to the many opportunities available in the construction industry.
The events are the work of a steering committee comprised of state and federal agencies, construction associations, private contractors and local labor unions. NYS LECET staff has participated in Construction Career Days in Albany, Rochester, Buffalo, Ithaca, Syracuse, Finger Lakes and Westchester.
