Welcome to the Laborers'
District Council of Eastern Pennsylvania.
laborer's world is constantly changing, and the
demand for skilled, safe workers is stronger than
ever. Changes in technology, increased
competition and a variety of environmental and
political issues are all affecting the
construction industry. Laborers who recognize
this as an opportunity are taking full advantage
of training and other union benefits that will
prepare them for a secure, productive future.
Area locals and union contractors have joined
forces to create the Laborers' District Council
of Eastern Pennsylvania Education & Training
Fund a program designed to provide
laborers with advanced skills in a variety of job
situations, and thus qualify them for more work
and higher wages.
It is well known that the members with the most
training get the majority of the work. Therefore,
our primary focus is training for the highest
quality standards to meet the demands of the
modern-day construction environment. Training is
provided in convenient locations across
Pennsylvania, using certified instructors and
up-to-date equipment in modern, simulated work
sites as well as in the classroom.

benefits, a pension, and a renewed respect for
the role of the skilled laborer.
