STAYALERT LIEN REPORTS

Advocacy

LEGISLATIVE ADVOCACY

 

+

STA Advocates for you in Albany and City Hall, seeking legislative reform on the issues that impact subcontractors such as payments, retainage, substantial completion, notice provisions, insurance issues, and lien rights. The result has been a history of legislative successes driven by our members support and involvement.

INDUSTRY ACCESS AND
REPRESENTATION

STA regularly communicates with public and private owners to advance and resolve the issues and concerns of subcontractors. Our members serve on boards, committees and task forces to advance the issues of union subcontractors. STA provides a forum for members to network with public and private owners, construction managers, and general contractors.

UMBRELLA ACTIONS

 

STA seeks to resolve issues without the need for litigation. But on the rare occasion where that is not successful, members may be afforded the services of our legal counsel where the resulting “umbrella action” allows all subcontractors to share in a single representation, sharing the legal fees proportional to the claim.

Networking

BUSINESS PRACTICE INTERCHANGE

 

STA was formed to provide a forum for subcontractors to meet and share information about the business practices of general contractors. Today, members seeking information about a particular contractor may reach out to STA for a list of subcontractors who have done business with that company, thus allowing for the confidential and professional exchange of information.

With an eye to the future, STA’s Young Professionals seeks to develop and empower emerging leaders through education and networking in the industry and with general contractor networking groups.
