Public Employees

District Council 35 is an aggressive and forward-thinking organization, committed to serving the interests of our members and those unrepresented workers who hope to join. The DC 35 membership has grown substantially in recent years, and we are determined to continue this trend to ensure that we maintain the best wages and benefits in our industries. Our mission is to represent our members for purposes of collective bargaining, to organize workers in a variety of occupations, and to advocate for workers and their families.

Safety and Quality Assured!

District Council 35 members are the best trained and most safety conscious in the building trades. Our members are required to take 10 hours of OSHA training, CPR training, respiratory exams and respirator fit tests, fall protection, scaffold training, and aerial lift training, among other classes.

Our members have committed to mandatory training both to protect themselves and to protect the economic security of their families, and to afford our companies a competitive edge with savings achieved through safety.
