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 projects 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 federal governments.
INSTALL is a comprehensive training and certification program created to meet the needs of our members and contractors in an ever changing competitive marketplace. Together, with our industry partners, we are raising the bar of installation standards throughout the world.
