In today’s highly competitive construction industry finding a competitive advantage isn’t easy.  Labor and management must work together and combine our strengths, talents and skills to fortify our position in the marketplace.  Neither workers nor employers can do it alone. Together, Labor and Management can generate business opportunities for union contractors and job opportunities for LIUNA members.

Combining Strengths

To strengthen our collective position in the construction marketplace, LIUNA and its signatory contractors formed a partnership dedicated to securing projects and jobs, increasing market share, and advancing market-related interests.  That partnership is known as the Laborers-Employers Cooperation and Education Trust Southwest (LECET Southwest).  LECET Southwest represents more than 40,000 LIUNA members and more than 2,000 signatory contractors throughout California, Arizona, New Mexico and West Texas.  LECET Southwest provides many valuable services, tools, and resources that LIUNA Local Unions, District Councils and Regional Offices and their signatory contractors can use to help increase market share and win projects and jobs.

Project Tracking and Alerts

LECET Southwest offers a customized project notification program to alert Laborers and contractors of upcoming project and job opportunities in the public works and commercial markets, as well as the industrial, energy, and pipeline industries. [more]

Marketing & Communication Programs

LECET Southwest promotes the Laborers, their employers, and the value of union construction to awarding agencies and developers in trade publications, at industry events, and in one‐on‐one meetings.

Industry Research

LECET Southwest conducts research on project information, corporate intelligence and construction markets to identify new trends in the industry and provide contractors with leading edge information for the opportunities that lie ahead.

Contractor Database

LECET Southwest’s database of LIUNA signatory contractors helps to make business connections. The database is searchable by scopes of work, agency certifications (e.g., small business), license type and geographic work areas. [Contractor Database]

Local Contractor Forums

LECET Southwest hosts events that bring representatives of Local Unions, contractors, awarding agencies and other stakeholders together to share ideas and information about the industry and to find creative and productive ways to work together.
