A decade ago representatives of the labor and management construction community got together to establish a small organization to tackle the big challenge of raising the bar on safety and health in the construction industry. The Labor-Management Construction Safety Alliance (CSA), as it was known back then, quickly rose to the challenge to become a recognized and innovative leader in safeguarding the lives and health of construction workers in Massachusetts and neighboring New England states. A few years later, several of CSA’s founders recognized the need to have a unified voice for union construction on a much broader range of issues that affect our industry in Massachusetts and the region.
