Benefits of Local 585
Members enjoy benefits unheard of for non-union workers. Government statistics show that the average pay for union construction workers is more that 50% above that of non-union construction workers.
LiUNA Local 585 was formed on September 20, 1967.
Local 585 is an affiliate of LiUNA—the Laborers’ International Union of North America—the most progressive, aggressive and fastest-growing union of construction workers, and one of the most diverse and effective unions representing public service employees.
LiUNA members are united through collective bargaining agreements which help us earn family-supporting pay, good benefits and the opportunity for advancement and better lives.
