Thank You for Helping Support Our Veterans!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for MassBTC’s annual celebration honoring the Helmets to Hardhats veterans career pathway program!

The MA building trades unions and union contractors are proud to have raised nearly $40,000 for this model program, which changes the lives of veterans across our city, state, and nation, by allowing them to transfer their skills into new family-sustaining careers in the union building trades.

Jim Lister, Business Manager/Financial Secretary, and Business Agent Jeff Saliba were proud to attend the November 9th event and donate $1,000 on behalf of Local 6. Lister and Saliba were joined by union member Sal Gentile who benefitted from the Helmets to Hardhats program.

At Local 6, we understand that it is through events like these that we support workers from every background as they embark on family-sustaining careers in the union construction trades, including women, people of color, and returning veterans.
