As we welcome 2024, it’s a time filled with excitement and anticipation for the union construction and maintenance sector. The future looks bright for our industry with many projects on the horizon – from Electric Vehicle (EV) battery plants to crucial infrastructure developments. These projects represent more than just technological and engineering feats; they symbolize progress and a step towards a sustainable future.

Any time you turn on the news these days someone will be talking about some new technology or development. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of the future, but it’s vital to remember the true heroes behind these endeavors: the contractors and the men and women in skilled trades who make these projects a reality.

It’s easy to admire the finished product – a towering wind turbine or a state-of-the-art facility – and overlook the sweat, skill, and dedication that went into building it. This New Year, we recommit to not just recognizing, but celebrating the workforce that not only lays the foundation, but keeps the lights on long after the project is complete.

Union Contractors do more than just construct; they form the backbone of our nation. Every new building, every mile of pipe laid, every solar panel installed is a testament to the thousands of lives that contribute to its creation. As we advance technologically, we must also progress in our appreciation and support for these skilled workers.

Our commitment goes beyond the job site. Union construction is about building a strong middle class, about ensuring that the prosperity of our industry is shared and benefits all. It’s about remembering that our work in constructing buildings is paralleled by our work in constructing lives, communities, and futures. In 2024, let us continue to build – not just infrastructures but a fair and prosperous society. Here’s to a year of growth, opportunity, and recognition for the skilled labor that drives us forward.

Wishing everyone a prosperous and fulfilling New Year!
