MASON TENDERS’ TRAINING
FUND OF NEW YORK
Originally established in 1987 under the name of the Mason Tenders’ District Council Asbestos Training Program, the Fund changed its name in 1995 to the Mason Tenders’ Training Fund.
Governed by a labor/management Board of Trustees and staffed by a highly professional team of instructors and office personnel, today the Fund is the most robust, well attended, and busiest LIUNA training affiliate in the entire Union.
We proudly serve the hardworking brothers and sisters of Construction and Building Laborers’ Local 79, Asbestos, Lead, and Hazardous Waste Laborers’ Local 78, and LIUNA Residential Construction and General Service Workers’ Local 10. Over 15,000 strong, these members are keenly aware of the importance of good training. They routinely take full advantage of the courses the Fund offers, and regularly return for up-to-date training.
Nowhere in this nation are more classes held, and more members trained in more languages than at the MTTF of NY. Each year approximately 20,000 students pass through our classrooms to improve their skills, understand safe work practices, and make themselves more valuable to a construction industry desperate for a productive well-trained workforce.
The MTTF of NY offers over 60 different courses, with most available in the English, Spanish, and Polish languages. The Fund’s ability to address the needs of a diverse group of student participants is its greatest strength. It embraces that diversity like no other construction trade training provider in NY City, or anywhere else.
The Mason Tenders’ Training Fund of NY is the Power to Excel in NY City.

LABORERS’ AT WORK
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Mason Tenders’ District Council of Greater New York & Long Island
The Mason Tenders’ District Council of Greater New York and Long Island has emerged as one of the most progressive and aggressive labor organizations in the nation. The over 17,000 members of the Mason Tenders District Council (MTDC) include construction workers, asbestos and hazardous materials handlers, recycling and waste handlers and Catholic high school teachers.
Mason Tenders District Council Political Action Committee
The Mason Tenders’ District Council Political Action Committee is the political arm of the Mason Tenders’ District Council of Greater New York and Long Island. Our mission is to maximize the influence of you, the members, in the highly competitive New York construction market. Without your PAC, it would be exceedingly difficult for the Laborers to get approval for major unionized construction projects, create and pass health & safety regulations, monitor and influence the highly regulated private carting industry and expand the markets for environmental remediation. The MTDCPAC Board is comprised of the Business Managers and officers of General Building Laborers’ Local 66; Asbestos, Lead and Hazardous Waste Laborers’ Local 78, Construction & General Building Laborers’ Local 79; and Recycling & General Industrial Laborers’ Local 108. We work in conjunction with all of the other Laborer’s locals statewide as part of LIUNA-NY.
Mason Tenders’ District Council Trust Funds
The Mason Tenders’ District Council Trust Funds administers the health and welfare, pension, and annuity accounts for all eligible Local 79 and Local 78 workers. Members who have questions regarding the benefits that they are entitled to receive should contact the Funds directly.
Greater New York Laborers-Employers Cooperation and Education Trust (LECET)
LECET is a jointly managed trust fund of the Mason Tenders’ District Council and its 1500 signatory contractors. Its mission is to generate business opportunities for union contractors and job opportunities for LiUNA members.
