Home Labor Relations

BCANJ's labor relations services are comprehensive and assist members in many different respects. From furnishing current and accurate wage data and collective bargaining agreements, to ensuring contracts are accurately and fairly interpreted, the Association's objective is to work with labor to build and strengthen our partnerships to everyone's benefit. As a result, private and public owners continue to recognize that union contractors bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and skilled craft workers to each job they engage.

Labor/Management Cooperatives

The Labor Information Binder is a helpful reference for contractors who employ trade labor.  It includes wage rates for the general construction trades, contract summaries, trade directories and much more.  It is continually updated throughout the year.

This information can be accessed through the members only page.

Project Labor Agreements (PLA) can create market opportunities for reputable, quality contractors and are a valuable tool for the public entity.  BCANJ tracks all PLA initiatives and assists members in developing competitive agreements.
National Labor News Update

Through BCANJ's National Labor News, we track issues pertinent to our members, such as immigration reform, contract compliance, construction industry employment and economic statistics. Labor News is published quarterly as an insert in our monthly Update in March, June, September and December. We welcome your comments and suggestions.

The Union Contractor Advantage is a Video or CD-ROM, produced by BCANJ, on the caliber of union construction.  The nine-minute production, concentrating on the management/labor partnership, emphasizes the union contractor's ability to bring jobs in on time, within budget, and to an owner's satisfaction. Contact the Association office for a copy of either form of media.
