Green Homeowners United is proud to officially announce that we are now a social enterprise union contractor! Our workers are now members of Laborers International Union of North America (LiUNA) local 113 in Milwaukee!

This fits into our long commitment to creating high-skilled living wage jobs, ideally for people of color to upgrade residential buildings to combat climate change. Green Homeowners United is proud to work with the union movement and environmental movement to advance the cause of upgrading buildings to be energy efficient, renewable-energy sourced and eventually fully electrified.

We fully believe that if one of the biggest opportunity to reduce carbon emissions is in residential energy efficiency (plus renewable energy and electrification) then it is not possible to take on the climate crisis without the experience, efforts and support of the Building Trades! Laborers, Carpenters, Electricians, Plumbers, HVAC Techs, Glaziers/Window Installers, Solar-Installers, and more will ALL be needed to make buildings (especially homes) more energy efficient.

We welcome the chance to work with you to create union jobs, fight climate change, and reduce utility bills in homes across Wisconsin.
