Local 251 represents the resilient floorlayers and drapery hangers of the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters.
Local 251 was established on April 5 , 2011 as the result of the merger of Locals 29, 2212 and 42. Later, Local 251 merged with Local 1823 of MRCC and then again with the Floorlayers of the KMLRCC.
Today Local 251 represents in excess of 1600 floorlayers and drapery hangers in the states of NJ, PA, DE, MD, WV, VA, DC, and NC. We provide skilled labor to our countless number of industry partner contractors who install carpet, resilient flooring, synthetic turf, athletic hardwood and synthetic floors, polished concrete, draperies/ blinds and more.
Our floorcovering professionals are trained on the INSTALL standards (International Standards and Training Alliance) of installation that was written in conjunction with the many mills and manufacturers of flooring we install on a daily basis.
This specific floorcovering curriculum is the basis of our apprenticeship program. Our 4 year apprenticeship program is endorsed by both the state and federal governments.
