Born in 1964, Dennis Martire hails from the Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania. He’s a proud member of the local union #1058. He gained his collegiate education in nearby West Virginia at Wesleyan College where he graduated in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science degree focused on government.
Dennis Martire took that education and applied it to his now 30-year career with the Laborers’ International Union of North America. He started with the organization in 1990 as an international representative for the jurisdictional disputes department, and from there, he grew and grew within LIUNA. He served in the roles of assistant director then director of the laborers’ construction department before becoming assistant regional manager for the mid-atlantic area in 2000. Only two years later, he took on the role he still holds today as the elected vice president and regional manager for the mid-Atlantic. Having grown up in this area and worked in it for over 30 years, Martire is making changes through LIUNA for his fellow working man and neighbor.
