New York State Laborers Build New York

Most LIUNA members in New York are skilled Construction Craft Laborers working hard to build a more vital Empire State. Many of us are people you see every day as we:

  • build and repair highways and roads
  • erect bridges and office towers
  • construct new schools and renovate aging facilities
  • create the airports of tomorrow

Other Laborers aren't as visible, but are working just as diligently to improve the state's transportation infrastructure and create more efficient, livable communities. We:

  • dig tunnels
  • lay subway and sewer lines
  • build pipelines and maintain nuclear power plants
  • eliminate asbestos, lead and other hazardous materials from our environment

Our members are-cement and concrete workers, drill runners and demolition specialists, asphalt pavers and asbestos workers, sandhogs and hazardous waste workers, flaggers, mason tenders and more.

Skilled, knowledgeable and professional, well-trained and always safety-conscious, New York State Laborers are dedicated to doing their jobs right and giving their best.
