NECA Encourages Chapters and Members to Participate in TAUC’s Annual Labor Supply Survey

The Association of Union Constructors (TAUC) released its “2019 TAUC Union Craft Labor Supply Survey” on Monday, January 14, 2019 to collect responses from industry professional across the nation. The survey will remain open for responses until Friday, February 8, 2019. This marks the fifth year of research for TAUC in sampling the Union Construction and Maintenance Industry on the current and prospective supply of Union Craft Labor. 

The purpose of the survey is simple, to determine if there will be a union labor shortage and where it may occur. It is vitally important to identify these issues in advance so that industry partners can attempt to address them before they occur. Therefore, NECA urges you to not only complete the 2019 Union Craft Labor Supply Survey but also to distribute it to your colleagues and other industry partners that can help all of us better prepare for the future. The link below can be used to complete the survey as well as be shared with other organizations and industry professionals:
