Construction is vital to Minnesota’s success, and is growing faster than any other sector of the economy. Today it is a $16 billion industry that directly supports more than 130,000 jobs.  By ensuring more projects pay competitive wages, maintain high standards of safety and craftsmanship, and support best-in-class career training, Minnesota’s trade unions and signatory contractors aren’t just building our infrastructure—they are building a stronger Minnesota.
