“Just being a part of this family, this brotherhood. It’s big. If you don’t have any kind of support system, you can definitely get one through this.”

The SMW 19 Difference

Great pay

Family health insurance

Safety on the jobsite

Pension benefits

Job security

Dignity and respect on the job

A team you can count on


  • Union dues go directly toward providing legal representation to our members, our members’ pension plans, safety funds, job training resources, union organizing efforts and much more. Dues go directly back to helping our members have the dignity on the job that they have earned.
  • Unions help workers negotiate wages and benefits, hours and working conditions with employers. Once it’s determined that everything that’s agreed upon is in the workers’ best interest, a contract is put together. A union’s job is to enforce the contract on behalf of the members.
  • When people stand together for what they believe, their united voice is much louder. Unions are the collective voice of workers. Unions use their power to ensure that workers’ rights are protected.
    Today, irresponsible employers commit wage theft, safety violations, and cause negative repercussions to communities they’re tasked with improving. Union employers are required by law to treat their employees with fairness and dignity.
