Local 147 Training Fund is a partnership between the members of Local Union 147 and The General Contractors Association of New York.
The Laborers International Union of North America (LIUNA) established Laborers-AGC in 1969. Soon it became evident that the local union also needed to be involved in the training and education of its members. In 2000, the Local 147 Training Fund was established to provide its members training in areas relevant to Local 147 jurisdiction covered by the collective bargaining agreement.
Local 147 Training Fund is a cooperation of labor and management to further their members/employees through training and education. This cooperation has allowed Local 147 to train hundreds of its members in health/safety practices, as well as new technology.
Local 147 will continue to work with The General Contractors Association of New York to provide current technology training to train the workforce of tomorrow.
