We Build Strong Businesses

Our glazing contractors drive our priorities – your success matters. By uniting together, we’re taking our businesses to the next level.

The Northern California Glass Management Association (NCGMA) represents union glazing contractors and manufacturers. Our primary purpose is to represent and promote the best interests of our members in all areas of labor relations.

We also keep members informed about current business trends, provide a place for members to go for legislation and regulatory issues, and provide educational training programs for owners and their office personnel.

We advocate for you to do business locally and globally.
We connect you to your local industry community and to our national network.
We negotiate on your behalf during Collective Bargaining Agreements and labor relations.
We educate our workforce and provide ongoing professional development to grow skills and help gain a competitive edge.

Labor Relations

We collaborate to form strong strategies and successful labor contracts.

No matter the size of your business, we advocate and represent your needs at the table. We have a history of negotiating successful and timely Collective Bargaining Agreements.

Labor negotiations are central to our work and your business. Our members benefit from effective representation and preparation during collective bargaining. We advocate for your interests and ensure the collective voice of our membership is heard during negotiations.

Upcoming Events

The COVID-19’s personal and economic impact has been devastating to us all.  It is unclear when regular business will resume at this time. However, when that time comes, your focus will be on your business and ours will be in supporting and assisting you.


We understand how you all look forward to our NCAT Golf Classic each year, but given our current circumstances, it is appropriate to cancel our NCAT Golf Classic originally scheduled for June 8, 2020.



Get empowered with the tools you need to stay informed and connect to new opportunities to manage your business effectively.
