For Contractors


Union carpenters and contractors working together protects our communities by prioritizing safety, healthcare, and stable futures. Together, the union and its contractors are creating a better and safer city for us all.

The best results come from the best labor, and union carpenters are the most skilled construction workers in the city. Contractors who employ union labor know that they have the safest job sites in the city, which protects their workers, their bottom lines, and all of us.

Together, union carpenters and contractors create real career and business growth opportunities for local residents and communities. They are standing up for working families and building a more stable future for all New Yorkers.

You can learn more at the Carpenter Contractor Alliance of Metropolitan New York (CCA Metro). They are the leading voice on issues affecting the joint interests of NYC’s union carpenters and the more than 1,000 contractors that employ them under collective bargaining agreements.
