Local Union 270 AFL-CIO
Laborers' International Union of North America

Local 270 is chartered by the Laborers International Union of North America, AFL-CIO. The International Union headquarters are located in Washington, D.C., with chartered Locals throughout the United States, Canada, and in the South Pacific.

The first recorded meeting of Local 270 was held on August 5, 1916. Then on November 1, 1982 the Local 234 General Laborers (Santa Cruz) merged with the Laborers Local 270. The Laborers Local 270 later broadened their horizons even more when they merged with the Local 760 (San Mateo County Cement Mill Workers), and the Local 283 (Santa Cruz Construction and General Laborers). Since that time, the Local has been providing representation and support for all our members in the Bay area. We represent employees in both construction and industrial occupations, and in both the private and public sectors. Our member's skills range from heavy equipment operator to laboratory technician, from city workers to policemen. Our geographic jurisdiction covers the California counties of San Benito, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Monterey. We have offices in Salinas, San Jose and Santa Cruz, California.

Through the collective voice of our membership, we promote the election of local, state and federal politicians who support legislation and government policy which is beneficial to working men and women. We seek to focus our voting power toward aiding those who share and support the values and ideals of working families.

We stand on the principle that only through concerted voice and action can workers maintain a fair, just and equitable partnership with their employers in the work place. We contend that all men and women have the right to organize for their own benefit, free from coercion and intimidation. We endeavor to further the interests, not only of those hard working men and women we directly represent, but all working people. We welcome all those who wish to organize, and extend our hand to help all those who want to help themselves.
