Public & Private Sector Members

While most people can identify the Laborers’ Union in the construction field, they don’t realize that the Laborers’ represent a very diversified work force throughout Local 1197 jurisdiction from Carmi, McLeansoboro, Mt. Vernon, Effingham, across to Robinson, Mr. Carmel, and Laurenceville.

Local 1197 represents over 800 public agreements with a wide variety of employers. Local 1197 provides assistance to its members by helping with organizing drives, negotiating contracts and servicing the membership. It is our goal to continue to organize the unorganized and to provide the leadership necessary to move our union forward.

If you are looking at this page and are a member we want your help and support to accomplish our goal. If you are not a member and would like to become a part of this great organization, please contact us using our online form or call us at 1-866-317-1197.
