We would also like to commemorate Ron Miller who will be retiring on August 1st from leading the LA/OC Building and Construction Trades Council!

 

 

Ron Miller is the Executive Secretary of the Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council. The Council represents 150,000 skilled construction workers in 14 Trades and 48 affiliated unions and district councils. Miller became Executive Secretary in 2012.

Miller leads the negotiations for billions of dollars worth of Project Labor Agreements with public and private entities, which guarantee that a skilled and trained workforce from Building Trades affiliated unions will be on the job. The list includes the most high-profile public and private projects of the last decade, with many agreements renewing into 2025 and beyond to cover work in the future.

These include SoFi Stadium, Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, Westin Anaheim Resort, AES Huntington Beach and Long Beach, Los Angeles Community College District, Long Beach City College, LA Football Club/Banc of California Stadium, LA Unified School District, LA World Airports, Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, LA County Metro, LA Department of Water & Power, SunCal, AEG, NBCUniversal, the Related Companies and Paramount Pictures.

A chief priority for the Building Trades is to drive economic equity, by passing on skills to the next generation through apprenticeship, with outreach to diverse communities to join the Trades. Under Miller’s leadership, the Council created the nonprofit Apprenticeship Readiness Fund, which coordinates more than 15 grassroots programs that facilitate local residents’ entry to apprenticeship and lifelong Trades careers.

Miller leads the Building Trades in fighting for important ballot measures that will benefit working people. The Building Trades were instrumental in passing measures to fund education, affordable housing, and mass transit.

Miller is a Vice President of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor. Miller serves on the Executive Board of the State Building and Construction Trades Council of California, as well as its Political Action Committee.

Miller rose from the rank-and-file of the Building Trades. He is a 43-year member of the United Association, Pipe Trades, and served as Business Representative for UA Plumbers Local 78. Miller will retire from his position as Executive Secretary effective Aug. 1, 2021.
