International Union of Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers



About Us

Since its founding in 1865, the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers has actively fought to improve our members’ quality of life – on and off the job – through access to fair wages, good benefits, safe working conditions, and solidarity among members. Today, we represent the most highly skilled trowel trades craftworkers across the United States and Canada including bricklayers, stone and marble masons, cement masons, plasterers, tilesetters, terrazzo and mosaic workers, and pointers/ cleaners/ caulkers. With over a century of protecting the rights of our workers, BAC is the oldest continuous union in North America. BAC’s member orientation packet contains important information about the union’s history, member benefits and services, and member rights and responsibilities. it is available in English, or Spanish and is part of the union’s member orientation program.
