See how Local 18 stands up
for members at the Statehouse

Our Legislative Department is responsible for lobbying and maintaining contact with local, state and federal governments on the issues of vital importance to Local 18. Our primary focus is advocating for legislation that creates and sustains jobs in the construction industry, including highway, building, aviation, sewer, water and pipeline, among others. We always support legislation that enhances Ohio’s commerce.

Equally important are the issues of pension, health and welfare, jobsite safety and any other issue related to the construction industry, in addition to ensuring building and plant standards for stationary engineers.
