About the Alliance

The California Alliance for Jobs is a unique labor-management partnership that advocates for responsible investments in public infrastructure projects. Representing over 2,000 heavy construction companies and 80,000 union construction workers, the Alliance focuses on the core of what keeps California’s people and economy moving as the state’s population grows: transportation networks, water systems, and increasing the quality of infrastructure for all Californians.

The Alliance believes appropriate investments in public infrastructure projects is an investment in the state, an insurance payment on economic prosperity, and a gateway to continued industrial viability. The production and transport of all goods and services depends on a statewide commitment to public infrastructure.

The Alliance is proud of our members and work to provide them with the support they need to build and maintain the infrastructure necessary for modern life.
