Members

The Local Union 383 operates under LIUNA’s Constitution, which is subject to amendment by delegates attending the International Union General Convention held every five years. The Union’s programs and agenda are set at the same General Convention through the consideration and adoption of resolutions submitted by Convention delegates and by the General Executive Board.

Local 383 members are united through collective bargaining agreements that ensure we earn family-supporting pay, health care an d retirement security, and the opportunity for career advancement. Members have representation by the Business Manager, Field Representatives and Stewards of their Local Union. The Local Union members participate in an election process to vote for their Business Manager. Members manage their own union, electing officers at all levels and participating in the day-to-day affairs of their local unions. Members set priorities for contracts and are the key in the Union's growth and success at increasing market share. Members often become Leaders of their Local Unions. Local Unions fall under District Councils that work with Regions to serve the Local, while other Local Unions work independently with the Regional Office Members enjoy benefits unheard of for non-union workers. Government statistics show that the average pay for union construction workers is more than 50% above that of non-union construction workers. Also, union members are more likely to have healthcare and a pension-- 82% of union construction workers have health insurance, compared to only 46% of non-union construction workers and 77% of union construction workers have a pension plan, compared to only 35% of non-union construction workers.
