Did you know the craftsmanship of a cement mason is one of the world’s most highly regarded skills?

A Local 500 cement mason’s craftsmanship is challenged on a daily basis while forming, sculpting, spraying, shaping, colorizing, texturizing, stamping, and smoothing wet concrete. This specialty necessitates newly learned processes along with skills that have been passed down for generations. In addition, a union cement mason from Local 500 is on the upper end of the construction pay and benefits scale. Becoming a union cement mason Local 500 is not a job, it’s a promising career that provides for individual and family independence as well as pride of work.
