The Columbus/Central Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council was established on June 1, 1961, and since then has provided over 50 years of skilled union craftsmanship to the greater Columbus area. Today, they represent more than 18,000 workers from 19 affiliated Local unions and District Councils.
The organization works to harmoniously promote the region’s construction trades, to protect the interest of the union construction industry and to advocate for a healthy labor-management relationship between employers and employees in the building and construction industry.
The Council believes in providing its members with strong leadership, negotiating skills and a powerful political voice that is taken to the bargaining table to provide the construction industry with solid representation and labor agreements to preserve measures such as Prevailing Wage, Project Labor Agreements and other issues.
The Columbus/Central Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council is headed by Executive Secretary-Treasurer Dorsey Hager and seven other Executive Board members.
