LIUNA Local 720 - Stability and Strength


We have been living in unprecedented times. With so much uncertainty facing us, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the stability and strength our members and their families have come to depend on. LIUNA, a family for over 117 years, has survived difficult and challenging times and through it all, each time we have emerged stronger than before.


As always, LIUNA is on the forefront, developing coronavirus worksite safety protocols and valuable resources for members. Your Colorado Team has adapted to the many changes to ensure that our members and their families have the necessary benefits and support they need.


Most of our members continue to work, and we hope to see all members back to work soon. The work that continues is critical to our communities and to our way of life and we appreciate our members for their sacrifice and courage.


We also want to thank members for continuing to follow the guidance of our elected officials and public health departments, taking care of themselves and their families, checking in on neighbors, and doing their part to keep us all healthy and safe.


Members of LIUNA never stand alone; we stand strong, proud, and united. We thank our members and their families for their continued confidence in, and loyalty to, Local 720, and to our great International Union.

W. Vernie Reed Scholarship (APPLICATION DEADLINE NOW EXTENDED TO JUNE 1, 2020)


In 1981 the W. Vernie Reed Scholarship Fund was established as a living memorial to the late W. Vernie Reed, General Secretary-Treasurer of the Laborers’ International Union of North  America, who represented our Northwest Region. Since that time, the scholarship fund has awarded 307 scholarships totaling over $475,000 to our members, their children and grandchildren from various Local Unions throughout the Region. We should all take great pride that we have established such a fund in memory of one of LIUNA's past leaders, who fought so hard for every LIUNA member, Local Union and District Council.


Through the generosity of Brother Reed’s friends and associates, a self-perpetuating fund will provide a program of yearly scholarships to assist eligible worthy students in furthering their four (4) year undergraduate education. The first award was made in the Spring of 1981. Scholarships are usually awarded before July.


We are please to announce that for 2020, the Board of Directors announced they will be awarding twenty-two scholarships (one per each Local Union in our Region) valued at $3,000.00 each. Keep in mind – an applicant WILL NOT be considered if the application is incomplete for any reason or is not received by April 1, 2020 (received – not postmarked). Additionally the Board intends to award twelve main scholarships at $2,000.00 each and one scholarship, the Pamela Reed Award, will be valued at $6,000.00.
