Labor Relations

AGC’s Labor Relations Department has a proud history as the leader in the Union construction industry negotiating with the basic trades. For nearly 100 years, the AGC has negotiated strong, multi-faceted Labor Agreements with the basic trades, including the Bricklayers, Local 8; Cement Masons, Local 599, Area 558; Commercial Carpenters; Ironworkers, Local 8; Laborers, Local 113; and the Operating Engineers, Local 139. The AGC represents the largest multi-employer bargaining unit in the region, consisting of hundreds of union contractors, which produces millions of man-hours per year.

The strength and relevance of our collective bargaining agreements and labor relations activity is driven by our trusted relationships with union contractors and leadership on the many union trust funds. The area covered by the AGC of Greater Milwaukee Labor Relations Department consists of the Six-County, Milwaukee Metro region, which includes Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington, Kenosha and Racine Counties.
