Constructors Association
of Western Pennsylvania

A trade association representing union-affiliated contractors in the heavy, highway, railroad and utility construction industry in western Pennsylvania since 1934.

Apprenticeship Programs

CAWP is adequately represented on all heavy and highway union joint apprenticeship committees operating in western Pennsylvania. The Association accomplishes this by appointing contractor members as committee members to each of these programs, which include the six basic trade unions: Carpenters, Cement Masons, Laborers, Operating Engineers, Pile Drivers and Teamsters. These committees are responsible for providing skilled construction workers through apprenticeship and training programs.
