A Collective Voice
In today's challenging economy and ever-changing work environment, working men and women need a union with strong leadership and a presence in the community. Advocating on behalf of the members of our Locals, the Rhode Island Laborers' District Council regularly meets with developers, planners, contractors, elected officials and community leaders to make sure that our members' voices are heard and their rights are protected.
Our affiliate unions negotiate on behalf of their members for fair and safe workplaces, better wages, a secure retirement and family-friendly policies, such as paid sick leave and health benefits. All of the Locals who are members of the Rhode Island Laborers' District Council speak out for fairness for all working families, for creating better standards in the workplace and for policies that strengthen the middle class.
A Better Life
Each Local works in concert with the Rhode Island Laborers' District Council to ensure that our members needs are met through on the job safety conditions as well as fair wages and benefits. In addition, we seek to provide new opportunities for our members through our apprenticeship program, continuing education and scholarships.
