The Builders Guild of Western Pennsylvania is a unique, non-profit labor/management initiative, representing 16 building trade unions and six affiliated contractor associations. The Builders Guild provides the forum for positive labor, management, and community relationships, and fosters a cooperative and productive climate for regional commercial construction development.
Through the Builders Guild, unions and management “do business” through cooperation, fair and equitable working partnerships, and an environment that promotes economic and professional growth.
The Guild is focused on three primary initiatives:
- Promoting the value of union construction
- Educating individuals and the community about the opportunities for long-term careers in the construction trades
- Facilitating diverse partnerships throughout Western Pennsylvania
The Guild was incorporated in November of 1999 and is governed by an executive board consisting of both union building trades representatives and contractor association directors, among others.
