TAUC Launches 2017 Union Craft Labor Supply Survey, an Industrial Info News Alert

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Jan 24, 2017) - For the third year in a row, The Association of Union Constructors (TAUC), in conjunction with the Construction Labor Research Council (CLRC), is conducting the Union Craft Labor Supply Survey, the only union-specific labor survey focusing on U.S. construction and maintenance.

TAUC encourages all union contractors, building trades members and owner-clients to take the labor survey today. All answers are confidential and will be submitted anonymously. The responses will be grouped together and then analyzed to create a final report that will be made available via the TAUC website ( later this spring.

Each survey participant can provide invaluable information that will help create a detailed, data-driven picture of the current state of the U.S. labor supply and assist the entire industry in planning for the future.

Since TAUC launched the Union Craft Labor Supply Survey in 2015, we have received a tremendous response from a wide cross-section of the entire industry, including more than 1,700 contractors, labor representatives, owner-clients and construction association representatives. Results from the two previous surveys can be found on

The 2017 Union Craft Labor Supply Survey has been further enhanced based on feedback from previous respondents. It drills down even further into the specifics of both regional and national labor supply trends. Additionally, new questions have been designed to identify the precise impact of project duration and availability of overtime hours on labor supply.

The goal is simple, and shared by both TAUC and its partners in labor: to provide an even more robust data set so that educated action can be taken to strengthen our industry.
