The members of the Cleveland Building & Construction Trades Council are community minded and care deeply about the Greater Cleveland area and our fellow residents. We not only work within these communities, but live in them as well, raising our families right alongside yours.
We frequent and shop at local stores and businesses, keeping our money in the cities and communities we have helped build up. We attend your churches and support our local sports teams right alongside you and your family. We donate our time and resources to local charities and work hard to make Cleveland a better community to both work and live in.
Our impact on the community is evident through hundreds of volunteer construction work hours our members donate throughout the year.
In June 2014, the Elyria Township 911 Memorial Committee broke ground for the construction of the Memorial. The free labor was supplied by mostly retired union skilled tradesmen.
A “Mission Complete” ceremony was held March 1, 2014, to commemorate the completion of the first “Purple Heart Homes” in Ohio. A great deal of the renovation work for this project was completed by volunteers from Cleveland Building Trades unions.
Every year, the members of IBEW Local 38 volunteer their time and services to help light up downtown Cleveland for Winterfest, the city’s holiday kickoff celebration.
About 20 members of IBEW Local 38 spent their spare time to help renovate the home of Cleveland kidnapping victim Amanda Berry.
