The Mainland Nova Scotia Building Trades Council, through our affiliated unions, provides highly trained, safe working Industrial-Commercial-Institutional tradespeople to the Nova Scotia construction industry. Our mandate includes promoting and developing business for our 11,000 members, and providing a united voice on issues affecting the professional trades.
We are the voice of organized construction, we work every day to promote our value, create positive exposure, and advance the objectives of the Building Trades. We strive to enhance the opportunities for our thirteen member unions and the professional tradespersons they represent. The depth of experience represented by our membership is truly impressive and ever increasing.
The Mainland Building Trades’ 13 affiliated unions have been long-time supporters of Northern Pulp. The mill provides substantial work for our members, with our tradespeople frequently in and out of the facility doing all types of jobs including maintenance and special projects.
The Building Trades recognizes the value of the mill and its employment of many Nova Scotians, including our members. We look forward to continuing our partnership.
