La Industria de la Construcción

en la Comunidad

Los Sindicatos  de la Industria de la Construcción en Norteamérica están desarrollando rápidamente una reputación como socios valiosos y confiables  en ayudar a reconstruir vidas y fortalecer comunidades enteras al crear oportunidades y caminos para la generación venidera – especialmente para las mujeres, las comunidades de color y los veteranos militares – a través de nuestra infraestructura para  la preparación para el aprendizaje y para la formación y la educación formal y la capacitación. Sin embargo, todos los días por toda esta gran nación, los sindicatos afiliados a NABTU y sus miembros de base están siempre ocupados proporcionando ayuda y asistencia, cuando y dondequiera que sea necesario. Nuestros miembros y nuestros líderes de sindicatos locales no son solo sus amigos y vecinos, sino que también somos sus entrenadores de Pequeñas Ligas, voluntarios en las iglesias, mentores de la juventud, así como muchos otros roles importantes que hacen a nuestras comunidades fuertes y viables.
