Union Labor 

All projects in which the BIT invests must first and foremost meet the Trust's investment objectives and criteria.  

In addition, the AFL-CIO Building Investment Trust (BIT) has adopted a comprehensive union labor policy which is designed to benefit the BIT's investments by:

1) Promoting positive labor relations, quality construction and productivity through the use of trained and skilled craft workers, while minimizing possible costs associated with labor disputes on properties in which the BIT invests.

2) Producing various union related collateral benefits with respect to the creation of union jobs and organizational rights to employees.  

Since the inception of the fund, the BIT's labor policies have enabled the BIT to generate thousands of jobs for union members of the building and construction trades, as well as thousands of union jobs in the service, maintenance, and operation of properties owned by the BIT.
