Why Join DISCA?
One of the main reasons union contractors join DISCA is to take advantage of the strong collective bargaining agreement. As part of DISCA, we have special terms that are not available in an independent agreement.
In addition, DISCA contractor members receive industry news, exclusive educational sessions and networking opportunities, recognition events, scholarship opportunities, legal consultations, membership in AWCI (Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry), special discounts and much more to help them be successful. DISCA understands your needs as a drywall and interior systems union contractor which is why we provide our members with assets they cannot get anywhere else. As a member, you get immediate access to these valuable benefits and resources.
In NJ, we participate in statewide collective bargaining and labor dispute resolution with trade unions representing members’ employees. On a multi-national level, in conjunction with our parent association, SWACCA, we participate in collective bargaining and labor relations with national labor unions representing specialties in the industry.
