The Cleveland Building & Construction Trades Council

The CBCTC is an alliance of craft unions who have made up the foundation of the construction industry throughout the City of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio for over 100 years.

Our affiliated unions represent more than 10,000 highly-skilled and highly-trained craftworkers to be utilized by area building owners and contractors who only want the most productive and professional workforce in the industry.

The CBCTC provides essential coordination, representation and support to the work of our 31 affiliated unions and district councils, with a concerted commitment to the principles our building and construction trades were founded upon: performance, cooperation and partnership.
