The Commitment to Union Workers Shown by Dennis Martire Has Been Complete

Dennis Martire
 Currently, Dennis L. Martire has served as Vice President and Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager for the prestigious labor union, the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LiUNA) since January 2002. That was 12 years into his career with them, since he started in 1990. He does so much for so many, looking back at his union work is most impressive. He’s done everything and he runs things in a way that no one could have predicted when he started there 30 years ago, in 1990.

In addition to his union work, Dennis Martire has also worked hand-in-hand with Montgomery County, Maryland officials to pass a prevailing wage law as a way of making sure working families could count on fair wages from their employers. Dennis also knows that such wage laws also serve another purpose; to ensure that taxpayers receive a greater return on their public investments. Most relevant studies show that prevailing wage laws do not drive up costs for employers, but they do improve worker efficiency, which means public works projects are completed faster and more easily, which is better for taxpayers and maximizes their investments.

Dennis Martire voted into LIUNA role

 

 
Dennis Martire began his tenure with the Laborers’ International Union of North America quite humbly. He was a member of his own Local Chapter #1058 out of his native Pittsburgh and dedicated to the organization. In 1990, he increased his responsibilities to LIUNA by becoming a valued employee; he started his 30-year career with them as an international representative for the jurisdictional disputes department. But it didn’t take long for Martire to thrive within the environment.

He became assistant director then director of the laborers’ construction department before earning the role of assistant regional manager of the mid-Atlantic region in 2000. In just two years, Martire was elected to an even better, more responsibility driven, position -- that of vice president and regional manager for the area. Within this elected position, Dennis Martire has blossomed and he’s held the role for two decades, making a difference across communities in the mid-Atlantic of the U.S.
