Building Trades in

The Community

North America’s Building Trades Unions are fast developing a reputation as a valuable and reliable partner in helping to re-build lives and strengthen whole communities by creating opportunities and pathways for the next generation – especially women, communities of color and military veterans – through our apprenticeship-readiness and formal apprenticeship education and training infrastructure.

But, every day across this great nation, NABTU’s member unions and its rank and file members are also busy providing community aid and assistance wherever and whenever it is needed. Our members and our local union leaders are not only your friends and neighbors, but we are your Little League coaches, church volunteers, youth mentors, as well as many other important roles that make our communities strong and viable.
