Our Priorities

The Wisconsin Building Trade Council (WBTC) was created in 2018 to act as a unifying voice for 40,000 union workers, to enrich and protect their livelihoods, families, and communities to build a brighter tomorrow.

We will act as the professional partner for businesses, developers, contractors, individuals, municipalities, and the State of Wisconsin to further the excellence and growth in the construction industry and in the local economy.

Securing A Stronger Future for Workers Through Prevailing Wage

When it comes to prevailing wage law, we find there is a lot of misunderstanding and confusion around what it really means.

What are the economic benefits?
How does it impact business owners and taxpayers?
Does prevailing wage increase construction costs?

WBTC welcomes these conversations so we can protect and secure a stronger future for a diverse workforce in our Wisconsin communities.

Our goals are big, from advocating for workers’ benefits, compensation, and safety to advancing initiatives to increase workforce diversity. We are committed to excellence in everything we do.
