The Association of Union Constructors (TAUC) and the North American Contractors Association (NACA) have formed a strategic alliance to advance "mutual interests," the groups said.
The alliance, approved Dec. 9, serves as a logical positive step in bringing together the employer segment of the union construction industry by deepening the commitment to work more closely on activities and issues that impact TAUC and NACA both on a regional and national level.
"This alliance will bring together the support and resources of two organizations that have a tremendous amount of synergy to the benefit of both of their memberships, and the positive impact they want to see in the union construction industry," said NACA Chairman Tim Reddington.
The alliance will include:
- Conducting joint meetings and sharing information related to construction labor relations, safety, and increasing market share.
- Participating in joint development of products and practices that benefit safety, productivity, market expansion and profitability.
- Focusing on issues of common interest that serve to promote a superior value-added product for our clients.
- Increasing membership awareness of industry issues through the exchange of information published in print and electronic media.
- Participating in research that emphasizes the development of strategic goals.
- Enter into a tri-partite approach involving owners, contractors and organized labor in bringing resolution to industry issues.
"Our association sees this as another incredible opportunity for the union contractor segment of the construction industry to come together to work on mutually beneficial goals, so that we can provide the best value to the clients of construction services," said TAUC President Robert Santillo.
TAUC is an umbrella organization, which is focused on working cooperatively with all union construction employer organizations. For more information, see www.tauc.org.
