Keeping the playing field level is key to the success of our signatory contractors who provide safe, family-supporting jobs for our membership. Through extensive monitoring, documentation and reporting, LIUNA, along with fair contracting organizations throughout the region, works tirelessly to hold all contractors to the standards set forth by local, state and federal laws. Prevailing wage laws, responsible bidder ordinances and OSHA violations are just a few of the areas that our investigators look into on a daily basis.
