Partnering with
Local Unions
For the past 50 years, Shannon has worked in partnership with our local labor unions. This workforce provides professionalism and a strong work ethic to our job sites.  

We are proud to employ members from Laborers Union local 373. Our laborer team is a critical component to our success, and their OSHA-certified training enables us to provide professional concrete finishing services, abatement services, and support to the entire construction team.  

Over the past year, this team has provided leadership in implementing our pandemic plan. From on-site pandemic leaders to temperature checks to clean workspace our laborer team ensures a safe environment for all our construction sites. In addition, ten-year team member Brandon Livesy also contributes to the Safety Committee each month providing an on-the-ground perspective to solving safety issues. We thank them for all their extra effort this past year and their ongoing professionalism.

Thanks from your Shannon Family
