North Dakota’s Building Trades are comprised of several unions within the state, working to provide our customers with the safest, skilled workforce ready to help build a stronger North Dakota. We want to become known as the workforce of choice for both private and public work.
The Energy Coalition for Contractor Safety (ECCS) is a group of North Dakota companies working together to achieve workplace safety excellence through standardized workplace safety practices, training and drug screening of contractor employees.
TAUC's mission is to act as an advocate for union contractors and enhance cooperation between the three entities involved in the successful completion of construction projects: the union, the contractor and the owner-client, the company for which the work is being completed. By encouraging this "tripartite dialogue," many potential issues and delays are eliminated before work even begins.
The NDCC is a member of the Lignite Energy Council.
The primary objective of the Lignite Energy Council is to maintain a viable lignite coal industry and enhance development of the region’s lignite coal resources for use in generating electricity, synthetic natural gas and valuable byproducts.
Members of the Lignite Energy Council include mining companies, major users that use lignite to generate electricity, synthetic natural gas and other valuable byproducts, and businesses that provide goods and services to the lignite industry.
