Members of the Santa Clara and San Benito Counties Building and Construction Trades Council not only work in your community, but they live there too.
As local workers, we pay taxes that stay within the community. Collectively, our more than 30,000 members pay millions of dollars in taxes to support area government and also make monetary contributions to help the needs of those less fortunate.
As a part of the community, our members are proud to shop in local stores, send their children to local schools and be involved with area organizations. They are the individuals who coach sports teams, attend local churches and serve on local government and other boards.
Our members also volunteer their time and skills to help those in need or deserving organizations. Time and again, building trades members are asked to donate their services and provide monetary support to worthy causes.
