It was April 1990 when Dennis L. Martire began his professional career with the Laborers’ International Union of North America. Across the next decade-plus, he’d grow in his roles and responsibilities with the pivotal organization until becoming its vice president and mid-Atlantic regional manager.
Martire began with the Laborers’ Union as an international representative. He was also a member of his local union #1058 based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Soon after becoming part of LIUNA, Martire grew to become assistant director then director of the organization’s construction department. His immense successes in these positions -- such as striving to pass fair wage laws and instituting new regional labor unions -- allowed him to continue his upward momentum as assistant regional manager for the mid-Atlantic region. Within two years, he was elected into his current title of vice president and mid-Atlantic regional manager with LIUNA.
