Our Union Partners

The Building and Construction Trades Council of Alameda, Contra Costa and Napa-Solano Counties is a coalition of over 40 affiliated unions representing workers in various construction trades.

Our council partners works with affiliated unions to:

  • Negotiate Project Labor Agreements with local agencies and governments to ensure skilled workers are employed, labor standards are upheld, and the community benefits from jobs created by development projects

  • Endorse candidates for elected office who support the goals of the Building Trades Council and its affiliated unions, and campaign for labor-friendly candidates

  • Build unity among the different building trades unions

  • Promote Union Apprenticeship programs to train the next generation of skilled workers

  • Work in alliance with other labor unions, labor councils and state and national labor federations to build solidarity
