About the LMCT

Since 1903, the Teamsters labor union has helped millions of workers achieve the American dream. Their success is a testament to those who came before, who united to form a labor movement. These workers fought for the rights and privileges that many Americans take for granted today. For instance, without the solidarity of unions, there would be no weekends, no pensions, and no health insurance.

Improve activities between the IBT and the PLCA and their partners

The LMCT became effective January 1, 2001 between the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (the “IBT”), the Pipe Line Contractors Association (the “PLCA”), and the individuals who agree to serve as Trustees of the Trust.

The primary purpose of LMCT is to improve activities between the IBT and the PLCA and their partners. The Trust coordinates work opportunities; provides worker support; improves efficiency; resolves disputes; provides on-going training and education and much more.

The pipeline construction industry must confront many competitive and technical challenges due to the increasingly hazardous nature of the work, the need for specially-trained IBT members, the extent of government regulation, and the necessity to protect public health and safety.

These challenges are of mutual concern to the IBT and the PLCA but have not always been susceptible to effective resolution through the collective bargaining process.
