The Skilled Trades Advantage

The BTA coordinates and promotes the interests of 18 Alberta local skilled trades unions, whose more than 60,000 members work in the residential, commercial and industrial construction, maintenance, and fabrication industries.

The BTA:

  • promotes a safe industry
  • works to influence legislation, regulation, and government sentiment toward organized labour,
  • creates and participates in alliances and partnerships with owners and contractors,
  • participates in boards, associations, committees and other industry groups,
  • develops programs that support under-represented groups in the trades, and
  • develops programs that highlight the value of unionized labour in order to help create more work opportunities for our members.
