National Infrastructure Alliance



International Union of Operating Engineers

“The IUOE’s goals are to establish a presence in those geographic areas where we now have little or none, to expand our presence even more in those areas where it already flourishes, to enhance our influence in the industry, and to increase our market share – all geared toward securing job opportunities for our members. At the same time, we must remain vigilant in protecting our local unions’ hard-won standards.

The NIA is the action-oriented partnership that will help us achieve those goals.”

James T. Callahan
General President



United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America

“The United Brotherhood of Carpenters recognizes that our members work in the most competitive industry in the world, where change and innovation are the order of the day. In an industry that rewards skill and productivity, the National Infrastructure Alliance and our contractors have forged a winning partnership that combines a tradition of excellence with state-of-the-art skills training to deliver the level of service demanded by our customers.

The UBC is committed to achieving success through skill and productivity.”

International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental & Reinforcing Iron Workers

"The Iron Workers are committed to increasing market share in all areas of construction. The NIA offers our Union in partnership with the other NIA Unions a chance to compete in markets where we have been unable to sustain significant market presence. Each successful project completed with our signatory contactors helps breathe life in our goal and creates employment for our members."

General President



Laborers International Union of North America

“LiUNA’s mantra is “organize or die.” To this end we are committed to member activism, capital strategies, grassroots politics, labor-management cooperation, journeyworker upgrade training, apprenticeship, and leadership education. Recognizing that labor and management share many of the same concerns and interests, LiUNA has built alliances with a wide range of owners, contractors, and business groups.

The NIA shares these concerns and interests.”
