Michael E. Hellstrom


Mike Hellstrom, Jr. is LIUNA Vice President and Eastern Regional Manager, a position he assumed in November 2022. A second-generation Union Laborer, Hellstrom joined LIUNA in 1984 working at the craft for what is now Laborers Local 79 – New York City. He later served the local union as an organizer and helped implement some of the union’s largest and most successful campaigns. In 1998, Hellstrom was tapped to run Laborers Local 108 serving solid waste, scrap metal, and general industry workers in the Greater New York City Region.

Prior to his recent appointment as vice president and Eastern Region Manager, Hellstrom served as assistant to the business manager and then business manager of the 17,000-member Mason Tenders District Council of Greater New York and Long Island (MTDC). Tireless in his approach and unwavering in his commitment to LIUNA, Mike Hellstrom believes unions are instrumental in setting and protecting workplace standards, developing the safe and productive workforce needed by employers, and strengthening communities through the creation of stable, middle-class careers in the industries LIUNA represents.
