United We Stand

UCON Up Front: February 2022, by Joe Sostaric, the Conco Companies, UCON President

I’m writing this article as one of my first acts since being elected as the new President of UCON. First, let me say to all that I am deeply honored and humbled to be given the opportunity to lead this great organization.

President Biden Signs $1 Trillion IIJA into Law

We Can Change an Industry

UCON Upfront: September 2021, by Mark Breslin, UCON CEO

Construction needs a make-over. We are shag rug. We are avocado-colored refrigerators. We are mullets. We are outdated. 

Take Action

Tell CA Governor & Legislature to Provide Tax Relief for COVID Paid Leave

Grassroots advocacy will be key to securing tax relief for our contractors. The key message is that the Governor should provide dollar-for-dollar tax credits to California’s union signatory contractors. It’s also very important to share anecdotes on how this misguided policy will hurt your ability to deliver critical infrastructure projects across the state. Thank you in advance for helping us keep a spotlight on this issue.
