Throughout his nearly 30-year career with the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA), Dennis Martire has grown in his profession in addition to achieving significant milestones for many labor union workers. Acting in his role of vice president and regional manager for the mid-Atlantic region since 2002, Martire has worked tirelessly for those he serves and has some monumental moments to show that.

Martire played an instrumental role in giving workers a vote to join the LIUNA Local 11 union — and they voted in favor of doing so. This representation effort for more than 200 workers marked one of the biggest union victories in Virginia’s construction industry.

And during his leadership tenure, Martire oversees LIUNA training programs and other endeavors in addition to his presence and opinions across numerous boards and committees likewise dedicated to labor unions and the mid-Atlantic workforce.
