My name is Nick DeFauw, and I have been part of Laborer Local 1076 for 20 years. I am second generation union labor.
I have done all kinds of different work; demolition, concrete, pipeline etc. I have worked in many different states and meet many different people along the way. Friends that have become family throughout my journey. I am very grateful for the many benefits that are provided through LIUNA; healthcare, pension and hourly wage. Now I am heading out for a new journey as an organizer. I am looking forward to helping new members earn and receive the great benefits that I was fortunate to receive over the years.
