What We Do

We go to bat for contractors.

Your voice drives our mission and shapes our industry.

Our SCCA Team
Address labor and compliance issues.

We represent members in grievance and arbitration procedures (rights not available to short-form contractors) and provide strong representation when negotiating all collective bargaining agreements.

Build contractors’ networks.

We give members ways to meet and share positive and productive networking opportunities with owners, vendors, and implementers in the industry, allowing you to build stronger business relationships.

Shape the future of our industry.

We are involved in the conversations that determine the direction of our industry and pass vital safety and policy news and updates your way as soon as we know about them.

Meet workforce needs.

We have a long track record of successful negotiations with the construction industry trades so that our members and affiliates get the most benefits possible from their labor contracts.

Offer professional development opportunities.

Our Construction Training Education Collaboration program, or C-TEC, provides SCCA members opportunities through training, education, partial grants, industry collaboration, and partnership with union trades, agencies, and policymakers.

We are SoCal’s best contractors.
