In today’s construction industry, a project’s success hinges in large part on the level of skill and productivity of the manpower  – which is why building trade unions like The Builders Association are so important! We represent 15 skilled trade agreements within the commercial and industrial construction industry and work to deliver the most reputable, qualified manpower in northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania. Our member companies have access to state-of-the-art education and training, unlimited manpower from apprenticeship and union labor halls, and a pool of technical, administrative and support resources.

ACCESS THE BEST COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL CONTRACTORS

The Builders Association’s top priority is providing its members with every tool possible so that they have the most skilled, productive crews to deliver quality work for project owners. We are the go-to resource for commercial and industrial businesses seeking the most qualified services for their project. See what sets our members apart!

HIGHLY SKILLED CONTRACTORS

Our reputation as a trusted building trade union is directly related to the quality of our member organizations. When you utilize services through The Builders, you know your job will be done according to expectations and specifications.

EDUCATION SUPPORT & TRAINING

Training and continued education result in better productivity, making the cost-value of union construction beneficial to project owners. Our members have access to free training programs and continuing education for skilled journeymen.

UNION-BASED CRAFTSMEN

Union workers are career men and women with an extensive background in their respective fields. Their training and experience results in jobs that are done quicker, safer and without the need for recalls or repair. Trained crews equal cost savings!

THE BUILDERS ASSOCIATION APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMS

Our apprenticeship programs train workers to become highly-skilled career men and women through a debt-free, technologically-advanced education. These earn-as-you-learn programs pay sustainable wages from the onset and supply our region (and country) with the best workers to build roads, bridges, industrial facilities, schools, and water and energy systems and more. Training periods range from three to six years and include a combination of classroom instruction and on-the-job training.
