Painters' Union Debuts Renewed Installation/Finishing Arm

Las Vegas, NV, December 18, 2019-The 2019 Finishing Industries Forum (FIF) launched on December 9, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The three-day event opened the announcement of the new identity of their reinvigorated joint labor and management initiative, Painters and Allied Trades Labor Management Cooperative Initiative (LMCI), to Finishing First.

Finishing First directly reflects its role as a resource of the finishing trades––giving union contractors and the craftspeople they employ a single, unified voice to address relevant industry issues. The Finishing Trades––which include industrial and commercial painting, drywall finishing, glazing, sign and display, and floorcovering installation–– add beauty, value and longevity to virtually every structure, from ship hulls and stadiums to historic buildings like the U.S. Capitol and Parliament in Canada.

In addition to the new name, the Finishing First new identity includes a redesigned logo, new marketing materials, refreshed programs and a new website ( that highlights the quality, expertise, safety and value resulting from a successful labor and management partnership.
