Union Conference on Immigrant Construction Workers Starts Thursday

The Center to Protect Workers' Rights is sponsoring a national conference beginning tomorrow in Sacramento, Calif., to start a dialogue about how unions are responding to the challenges of new immigrants streaming into the construction labor force. The California State Building and Construction Trades Council and UC Berkeley's Labor Occupational Health Program are co-sponsors.

The event will examine the past, present, and future of immigrant labor in construction trades and the barriers faced by union organizers.

CPWR was founded by the AFL-CIO's Building and Construction Trades Department in 1979 and is a longtime partner with NIOSH in its work to conduct research about conditions and hazards in the construction trades and also training for workers in the industry. For information, visit www.cpwr.com.
