Question Looking for list of: union companies for drywall and metal stud framing in Las Vegas, Nevada

I am planning a move within the next 2 weeks to Las Vegas, Nevada. I heard the commercial drywall / metal stud framing union was #1977. I'm not sure of the actual phone number as I was transfered around so much, but I eventually got there and they claimed that company policy was that they would NOT give out any companies in the union. (I tried to search on here first but found nothing).
Does anybody out there know where I can find this information at?
Any help would be truly appreciated.
Thanks

My husband is a journeyman taper. He is in the Painters and Allied Trades Local 159. I don't think that you can get the list of employers until you join. He has only been hired throught the hall except for the job he's on now. He will probably be with this company for a long time. It's feast or famine and who you know. There are some non-union drywall contractors but their journeyman pay (he has 20 years exp) was $20 /hr with NO benefits.

Good luck... remember that it's not as great as you hear and there are hundreds of guys looking for the same work you are after.

Component Assembly Systems is a big union outfit in Las Vegas- they're doing several parts of the City Center project.
