Local 1258 is a local affiliate of the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LiUNA), and formed out of the amalgamation of Local 101 in Winnipeg and Local 1157 in Gillam in 2000.
With 500 thousand members across Canada and the United States, LiUNA’s workforce is comprised of skilled, specialized and experienced workers in the construction and energy industry sectors, unified through collective bargaining agreements. These agreements help members earn family-supporting wages, good benefits and opportunities for industry advancement.
