Building & Construction Trades Councils

Illinois has 20 Building & Construction Trades Councils representing construction trades union members all across the state of Illinois.  Their members lead projects that generate local jobs and revenue while building community partnerships and helping to maintain communities and infrastructure.

NABTU


Illinois Building & Construction Trades Councils are direct charters of  North America's Building Trade Unions (NABTU).  NABTU is dedicated to the stability of employment and economic security of organized construction workers in North America.  Their purpose is to create more construction work opportunities, achieve living wages and protect benefit standards for ALL construction workers. 

Apprenticeships

North America's Building Trades Unions' world-class registered apprenticeship programs train workers to become highly-skilled, high wage earning construction workers through a debt-free, technologically-advanced education.  These earn-as-you-learn programs pay family-sustaining wages and provide health care coverage and retirements from day one.  Apprenticeships provide the best construction training in the business, equipping local workers with top-notch trade skills for fulfilling lifelong middle class careers in the building trades.
