RESEARCH AND PREVAILING WAGE COMPLIANCE
Through project tracking and state-of-the-art research, the Hawaii LECET Fund keeps its members informed about current industry trends and news, market share, and competitors. By maintaining an active presence throughout the industry, Hawaii LECET strives to make sure that all construction laborers are paid a fair wage.
GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS ACTIVITIES
Working with the Hawaii Laborers Union and other construction industry representatives, Hawaii LECET encourages safer job sites, and a level playing field on public works projects in the state of Hawaii.
Additionally, Hawaii LECET supports private sector landowners and developers with their permitting and zoning requirements at regulatory hearings.
MARKETING AND INDUSTRY EDUCATION
Advertising, education, job site visits, participation in trade shows, high school career days and job fairs help Hawaii LECET spread the word to developers, government agencies, and other contractors that union construction is the safest, most reliable way to build.
Hawaii LECET is supporting niche marketing in specialized areas such as Trenchless Technology, unexploded ordinances removal, and hazardous material cleanup. Efforts to educate the construction industry about the new "Construction Craft Laborer Apprenticeship Program" and the "Skills Upgrading Program" are also underway. Recruitment and retention of skilled Journeyperson Laborers remain paramount for a successful future.
