What is the LMCI?
The Painters and Allied Trades Labor Management Cooperation Initiative (LMCI) is an organization, jointly administered by the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) and its employers, with the mission to grow the market share of the union construction companies and workforce.

The members of LMCI Board of Trustees are equally represented by representatives from the IUPAT and the Finishing Contractors Association International (FCA)–an advocacy group for unionized finishing contractors.

As industry advocates, we give our contractors and members a single, unified voice to address industry and political decision-makers on issues of mutual interest.

We accomplish our goals by exploring new markets and technologies; business-to-business networking; driving solutions on health and safety issues and by promoting advanced training and education for the IUPAT workforce.

We Finish What You Started.
