LIUNA, the Laborers' International Union of North America, is a strong and proud union of workers founded by immigrants in 1903. A half-million strong across the country, we are united through collective bargaining agreements which help us earn family-supporting pay, good benefits and the opportunity for advancement and better lives.
Members run LIUNA, electing officers at all levels and participating in the day-to-day affairs of their Local Unions. Members set priorities for contracts and are key to the union's growth and success. The mission of LIUNA is implemented through nine Regions, more than forty District Councils and 380 Local Unions.
The Laborers' District Council of Minnesota and North Dakota, Minnesota’s infrastructure union, represents and serves more than 28,000 members and family members of five Local Unions: Local 363 (City of Minneapolis and City of Saint Paul Parks and Recreation, Public Works and Public Housing employees); Local 405 (Rochester and Southeast Minnesota); Local 563 (Minneapolis-Saint Paul Metro, Mankato, Saint Cloud and North Dakota); Local 1091 (Duluth-Superior, Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin); and Local 1097 (Iron Range and Northern Minnesota). We are your friends and neighbors building our future and quality of life.
LIUNA operates Minnesota’s largest and most diverse skilled construction apprenticeship program. We partner with more than 800 union contractors to enhance worker skills and promote workplace safety at our training center in Lino Lakes. Our Registered Apprenticeship Program leads a diverse workforce to job and career opportunities.
LIUNA is one of Minnesota's largest and most politically active unions. We are proud to support leaders who share our values and priorities:
- Creating family-sustaining jobs
- Protecting working peoples’ freedom to negotiate a fair return on work
- Providing affordable health care and retirement security
- Advancing all workers’ freedom to prosper so that we can provide for and have the time to be with our families
LIUNA members engage in political action to protect our livelihoods. Every year thousands of LIUNA members make personal phone calls, talk to fellow members and visit the Legislature and Congress to advocate for good jobs and to hold elected leaders accountable. LIUNA members also vote and give their hard-earned wages in political contributions. We support candidates from both political parties who work with us. Our members, retirees and families want to help elect champions of working people.
Work hard and good luck on the campaign trail. We look forward to working with you in the future.
