You demand high productivity. We implement a wide variety of measures every day, from innovative technology, to enhanced processes to improve productivity on the job. Every job.


It’s simple: We do it right the first time, every time. It’s a bi-product of applying years of proven processes to every job in order to increase the productivity and efficiency of our workplace.

It’s a fact that union jobs are almost 17 percent more productive on average than open/merit shops in the USA. It’s also a fact that subcontractor supplied labor is 13 percent more productive on average than direct-hire labor. When you look at the numbers, it’s easy to see that good labor productivity does more than reduce cost; it also ensures more jobs get done on time, as well as improving product quality. And that’s what Local 442 is committed to on every job.



You want a safe workplace. We have a proven track record of making safety the top priority for every worker and UA member. Every day.


The United Association Department of Safety and Health is charged with one of our organization’s most important and essential activities: protecting the lives of UA members on the jobsite. Each day this charge is effectively put into practice through programs and practices to implement safety issues in the workplace, including workers’ rights; job hazards, protection against chemicals, equipment and dangerous work practices, and recognition of safety and health officials on each jobsite.
In addition, the UA Department of Safety and Health monitors the many regulations put forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA). By monitoring new safety hazards and regulations issued by OSHA, our organization not only ensures that our local unions are aware of these rules and their significance to our members, but that they are an integral part of our training that we put into practice each day.
