“We’ve realized that by signing a contract with Local 139, our business has grown in ways that could never have happened without the union.”  

-Lowell Wolf, President, Wolf Sand & Gravel
“We found it [being a union contractor] has opened some doors for us. We wanted to do more commercial and public works and this has opened us up to working with other contractors.”  

-Jim Mandt, Mandt Trucking & Excavating

The secret’s out. Becoming a union contractor is one of the best ways to grow and diversify your business. Union contractors are qualified to bid on public infrastructure projects in addition to private and industrial development work. And for contracts requiring prevailing wage rates, you can center your bid around your expertise because wage rates will be the same for all bidders. Union contractors also enjoy the benefits of:

  • Clearly defined job classifications and wage rates
  • A well-trained supply of labor – no recruiting
  • Low turnover
  • High-quality work done safely, done right and on time
  • Apprenticeship and training programs
  • Cost-effective ways to provide health insurance and retirement benefits
  • Established, proven procedures to solve work issues quickly
