10,000+ Members Strong • Building Quality Communities in Northeast Wisconsin
As the United States works to rebuild our economy from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, Congress must be focused on getting Americans back to work. They should focus their efforts on creating and protecting reliable, good-paying, family-supporting jobs. Comprehensive new studies found quality job opportunities in oil and natural gas construction, and both union and non-union energy construction workers report that oil and natural gas jobs are better for them in both the short and long term.

North America's Building Trades Unions' (NABTU) world-class apprenticeship programs train workers to become highly-skilled, six figure earning construction workers through a debt-free, technologically-advanced education. These earn-as-you-learn programs pay family-supporting wages and provide health care coverage and retirement benefits.
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.
