I think what the O/P is getting at, is he could literally have a dozen or so "employers". I've worked field construction in the past. The union refers you to a job, you go sign the books, and go to work for the contractor until the job ends. But you don't necessarily have the same employer from month to month or maybe even ever again. You are never employed with any of the contractors permanently. The true tie is with the union that refers you to the job. The union is the fixed component and the contractors are the variable. I'm not sure what would be the proper thing to do.

Ahhh, okay I see. I think in that case the petitioner might want to follow the procedure for being self-employed, and include a cover letter explaining his situation. I don't exactly understand how the union works, but if it's possible to get a letter from the union saying that you are paid whatever hourly rate, and whatever else might be pertinent. Does your union keep track of how many hours you've worked?

the union does track my hours and i have a set pay rate but some contractors pay above scale the union does not track when i am payed above scale i just want to be sure i do not get unnecessary delays for something that seems like it should be a simple entry on the form

When you are paid higher than union scale, does your union keep track of that? Or do they only keep track of hours?

i really am unsure i know there is a website where i can track my hours and pay etc

This is something you'll need to figure out. If they do keep track of your earnings, then you can just have the union write the letter saying you earned such and such over the last year.

doesnt my tax return and w=2s show that

Who issues the w-2 for you? That is your employer. I am curious why you receive a W-2, if you are trully a contractor. Typically, contractors would get an 1099 form that indicates all fees paid to them.
