Achieving 20% Tradeswomen by 2020

Plasterer

At Local 534, we’re committed to providing the opportunities, training, and support to ensure that everyone can build a great union career. 

This year, we were proud to receive the Building Pathways “20% by 2020 Award” for meeting the ambitious goal of 20% female apprentices by 2020. Building Pathways Building Trades Pre-Apprenticeship Program is a vital gateway for low-income area residents to access successful careers in the construction industry. 

With support from programs like Building Pathways, our trades can ensure that everyone has a chance to support their families with great wages and benefits.

On behalf of our Local, thank you to all our members for helping us achieve this milestone. We’re proud to continue leading the way for diversity in our industry.
