Mason Tenders’ District Council

The Mason Tenders’ District Council of Greater New York and Long Island has emerged as one of the most progressive and aggressive labor organizations in the nation. The over 17,000 members of the Mason Tenders District Council (MTDC) include construction workers, asbestos and hazardous materials handlers, recycling and waste handlers and Catholic high school teachers.

Greater New York Laborers-Employers Cooperation and Education Trust (LECET)

LECET is a jointly managed trust fund of the Mason Tenders’ District Council and its 1500 signatory contractors. Its mission is to generate business opportunities for union contractors and job opportunities for LiUNA members. 

Mason Tenders’ District Council PAC

The Mason Tenders’ District Council Political Action Committee (PAC) was formed on January 20, 1998. Construction may be the most highly regulated and among the most competitive industries in the New York metropolitan area. In order for us to keep our members working in good, safe, well-paying jobs, becoming involved in the political arena was an absolute necessity. In the ensuing years, your PAC has influenced government to approve literally tens of billions of dollars worth of unionized construction work throughout New York City and Long Island.


In 1999 the signatory contractors and local unions of the Mason Tenders District Council came together to establish Tenders Inc., a 501 (c) 3 charitable entity.  The stated mission of Tenders Inc is “to help those individuals and organizations in the communities where our members and employers live and work”.  And we have remained true to that mission. Over the past 20 years, Tenders Inc has donated over $1.2 million to dozens of worthy organizations, large and small.
