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).
Last year Tenders Inc. launched Laborers Care – A Campaign for St. Mary’s Kids. Under the leadership of Local 79’s Business Manager Mike Prohaska, the union has committed to raising $500,000 for St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children, over the next five years.
St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children is a nonprofit organization, and a national leader in intensive rehabilitation, specialized care and education for children and young adults with special needs and life-limiting conditions.
On May 19th, Laborers Care sponsored the 9th Annual Walk for St. Mary’s Kids, which took place at Belmont Park. Over 100 members of Local 79 came out in full force despite the miserable raining weather to participate and support this Annual Walk.
With donations still coming in, Local 79’s hard work and dedication were able to raise of $20,000.
