About Us

Our Mission Statement
The California Alliance for Jobs is dedicated to improving the livelihoods of the men and women of the Northern and Central California heavy construction industry. We believe heavy construction is an engine for our state's prosperity and the key to a better quality of life. We also believe that an investment in our infrastructure is an investment in the future. Together, the Alliance and its members are building a better California, today and for generations to come.

The California Alliance for Jobs represents more than 1,700 heavy construction companies and 50,000 union construction workers from Kern County to the Oregon border.

The Alliance advocates responsible investment in public infrastructure projects to help build a secure future for all Californians.

As a labor-management partnership, we work to create jobs for our members that ensure Californians have the water systems and transportation networks they demand. We believe appropriate investment in public infrastructure is an investment in the state, and an insurance payment on economic viability.

Our members build and maintain the infrastructure necessary for modern life: our streets, highways, sidewalks, railways, bridges, tunnels, sewers, pipelines, dams, parks and stadiums.

The production and transport of all goods and services depends on a statewide commitment to public infrastructure.
