WE BUILD

ONTARIO

Well Trained. Highly Skilled
Labour. Simply the Best,
since 1903.
When a community is built from the ground
up, there is no labour force on the planet,
better skilled to get the job done right the
first time. LiUNA members and retirees
made a commitment to their careers, which
means a commitment to our communities.
A commitment to build the BEST schools,
airports, hospitals, office buildings, tunnels,
power plants, roads, bridges, low rise and
high rise housing in the country. When
the work is done, LiUNA members and
retirees continue to live, play and grow in
their communities, with the guarantee of a
pension that is also.... simply the BEST!
