Proudly Representing the Indiana Union Construction Industry Since 1976

What is Top Notch?

Top Notch proudly represents more than 75,000 union tradesmen throughout Indiana, as well as the 4,000 union contractors who employ them. Top Notch fosters partnership between labor and management. From safety discussions, community outreach programs, diversity initiatives to the development of a substance abuse program for the Indiana union construction industry, labor and management in Indiana have worked in tandem under the Top Notch umbrella for four decades.  Scores of business agents and contractors have met at the Top Notch table over the years to discuss initiatives that could improve their job sites and the industry as a whole.

Our Mission

Top Notch is the one association representing all sectors of Indiana’s Union Construction Industry.  Top Notch promotes and advocates the value and cost-effectiveness of its members that make up Indiana’s highly trained and skilled construction industry.  Top Notch leads, coordinates, communicates, educates and unifies key associations and labor groups within the Indiana Union Construction Industry.
