Texas BCTC History

The Texas State Building & Construction Trades Council was issued its first charter by the Building and Construction Department of the American Federation of Labor on March 12, 1941. The charter was signed by the Building Trades Officers, President John P. Coyne and Secretary/Treasurer Herbert Rivers.

Our original charter members were:
Paul Biels, Clifton Brignac, W.W. Finch, B.A. Gritta, Sam R. Huber, Roy B. James, Thomas R. Jones, John A. Luttrell, A.S. McBride, J.W. Park, Thomas B. Reed, E.A. Smith, John Sorenson, W.E. Wilcox, J.E. Wood and Charles Youngkins

On January 3, 1961 a new charter was re-issued due to the merger in 1955 of the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations into the now known National American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). The re-issued charter was signed by the Building Trades Officers, President C.J. Haggerty and Secretary/Treasurer Frank Bonadio.

The re-issued charter members in 1961 were: R.F. Arthur, Charlie M. Benson,
H.S. Brown, John F. Clark, L.E Dilley, M.A. Graham, Roy Hughes, Sam Huber,
John B. Kirton, G.A McNeil, F.F. Nakovic, C.N. Renfro, Lee Scallorn, L.C. Threadgill, J.H. Villarreal and Herman Whatley.
