The BTEA is identified throughout New England and the northeast as the major voice for the union building trades contractor. The BTEA encompasses seven different area trade associations that employ tradespeople from several different local building trades unions.
To best serve our membership we maintain a strong affiliation with various national contractors associations. Along with several national affiliations, we maintain close working relationship with several of the area building trades unions. The BTEA forms labor committees from each of its seven trade groups in order to negotiate with 13 different trades covering over 85 different local unions in the northeast region.
The BTEA also tracks legislation and government affairs that affect the construction industry. Through the years the BTEA has developed and maintained a healthy relationship with the leadership on Beacon Hill. This relationship affords us the opportunity to influence policymaking that would affect the construction industry. Members and staff travel regularly to our nation’s capitol to sit down with our Congressional Delegation and voice our opinion on issues at the national level.
The BTEA strives to maintain healthy and prosperous relations between labor and management. We get involved in organizing and sponsoring joint safety programs, informational seminars, and training programs to promote the construction industry. We also serve as trustees on several joint apprenticeship and training committees. By doing this we can help our members recruit qualified men and women needed to carry our industry well into the 21st Century.
For over 70 years the BTEA has made a positive impact on the construction industry. Our members have enjoyed positive working relationships with the various trade unions and national associations that we work with on a daily basis. Our goal is to maintain a positive environment in which contractors and tradespeople can enjoy health and prosperity within the construction industry.
