Local 251 is a Council wide Flooring Local representing over 1,600 floor covering professionals in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC and parts of North Carolina. The Local was reconfigured as a result of the merger of Local 251 and Local 1823 on February 4, 2016.
We are the preferred choice to install floor covering project for commercial, residential, and institutional job sites of any size, complexity and configuration. Our floor covering professionals, both apprentices and journeymen are trained and certified by the INSTALL standards. Apprentices are enrolled in an apprenticeship program that is endorsed by both the state and local governments.
"We must elevate the craft, protect its interests, advance wages, reduce the hours of labor, spread correct economic doctrines and cultivate a spirit of fraternity among the working people regardless of creed, color, nationality or politics. These principles are the foundation of our organization."
