Market Recovery Programs
The Market Recovery Program, instituted by SMACNA Detroit and Local 80, establishes cost-effective programs for signatory contractors by developing strategies to secure man hours and increase market share within the construction industry.
With over $9.5 million invested that has secured one million man hours valued at $53 million, SMACNA Detroit contractors continually use the Target Program to retain and pursue man hours from competitors for the advancement of the industry and financial benefit of the pension and health and welfare funds.

This Market Recovery program was specifically established to assist employers in capturing work that would be done by non-signatory contractors and used to balance the differential in wage rates and fringes of competing contractors. Resolution 78 allows for a mix of Residential and Construction workers to assist in lowering the overall crew costs when bidding jobs.
Homeowner rebates are available within our Residential market sector for payment directly to the customer. New and retrofit work applies for customer rebates ranging from $150 to $350 per unit. SMACNA Detroit contractors use this promotion tool to assist with sales and marketing.
