About Our Union

LIUNA North Dakota is the official website of Local 563, an affiliate of the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA), that provides opportunities for North Dakota construction workers to gain skills to pursue successful careers in the construction and energy development industries. Laborers' Local 563 of North Dakota represents hundreds of men and women who are helping build a better North Dakota. We are the state's leading provider of skillled construction labor on pipeline, power plant, highway, and building construction projects. 

LIUNA North Dakota serves the needs of members, contractors, and construction owners by providing flexible workforce solutions; competitive health and retirement benefit programs; and world-class skill and safety training.  Every year, we recruit, train and dispatch hundreds of skilled construction workers for energy, civil and building construction projects.  Our training and safety programs meet or exceed industry standards and help make job sites safer – reducing accident rates, controlling workers’ compensation costs, and saving lives.

No one works harder in the field.  And no one fights harder for job-creating investments like the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.  We are the face of the new American energy economy, showing by example how energy jobs can support middle-class careers and sustain the American way of life.
