We are proud to use our collective power to negotiate and partner with our signatory contractors to provide the best member benefits in the building and construction trades. Together, we enhance worker skills, promote workplace safety and job and career opportunities for a diverse workforce. LIUNA members earn a fair return on work, family-supporting wages, affordable healthcare and retirement security, so we can provide for and have time to spend with our families.
A key goal of LIUNA Training is to develop and facilitate Construction Craft Laborer training that will enhance LIUNA members' skills, promote workplace safety, offer job and career opportunities for a diverse workforce, and enable members to obtain and maintain employment that provides family-supporting wages and benefits. This is accomplished by offering an extensive curriculum of courses throughout the year. Training coincides with the construction industry’s schedule and offers the majority of its courses between November and April. Day courses are offered year-round.
Courses are conducted in our beautiful 44,000 square foot facility in Lino Lakes, Minnesota. The training center consists of classrooms, meeting rooms, a welding area, three 6,000 square foot hands-on training bays and administrative offices. Our instructors are highly qualified and certified to offer a full range of course. Our facility is recognized as an authorized provider of industry specific courses by the Asbestos Abatement Unit of the Minnesota Department of Health, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Our facilities’ enrollment capacity permits up to 150 trainees per week in various construction, environmental and safety skills courses. We offer this training as a benefit to LIUNA members and signatory contractors. Our goal is to create opportunities by educating and training skilled Construction Craft Laborers.
