Dennis L. Martire assumed the position of Assistant Regional Manager for the Mid-Atlantic Region in March 2000, and within a span of two years, he secured election as Vice President and Regional Manager. His significant involvement with the Laborers’ Health and Safety Fund of North America (LHSFNA) and his role as a Trustee for the Mid-Atlantic Laborers’ Employers Cooperation and Education Trust (MALECET) are remarkable accomplishments. However, it is his enduring contributions as a leader within the Laborers International Union of North America (LiUNA) that truly set him apart.
Three Decades of Inspiring Leadership by Dennis L. Martire
Over the past three decades, Dennis L. Martire has consistently demonstrated exceptional leadership in numerous successful LiUNA initiatives. Among his notable achievements was the facilitation of a process that allowed workers on the Fluor-Lane’s expansion of Route 495 Hot Lanes Project to exercise their choice regarding union membership. This initiative held immense significance as the workers overwhelmingly voted to unionize and become members of LiUNA Local 11. It stands as a shining example of a triumphant union victory within the Virginia construction industry.
Beyond his role in managing LiUNA’s Mid-Atlantic Region, Dennis L. Martire holds influential positions on various boards and committees spanning diverse industries. Particularly noteworthy are his chairmanship of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Organizing Coalition (MAROC), his advisory role on the American High-Speed Rail Alliance Advisory Board, and his contributions to the Blue-Ribbon Commission on Maryland Transportation Funding, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA), and the Dulles Area Transportation Authority.
