Construction Craft Laborer

lilmelA well-trained, skilled, safe workforce is critical to quality construction. Accredited union apprenticeship programs form the foundation of this workforce. They ensure that journeymen and women are experienced professionals, and that apprentices gaining experience in the field have proper guidance and oversight.

To become a fully qualified journey worker, Construction Craft Laborer apprentices
must complete:
• At least 144 hours per year of classroom training;
• 4,000 hours of on-the-job training;
• Work experience in building construction, heavy/highway construction,
and environmental remediation;
• Classes in general construction skills and core Laborer skills;
• Electives in several specialty markets;
• Drug testing.

Contractors and construction users who include Construction Craft Laborer apprentices in their work crews enjoy reduced hourly labor costs while helping to train the workers they will need in the future.

Construction users who build union can rest easy knowing that every worker on site must meet high standards of safety, training, and craftsmanship.

The Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) Construction Craft Laborer apprenticeship program builds the well-trained, fully tested, safe, skilled workforce contractors need and users deserve.
