During his monthly appearance on America’s Workforce Radio, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of Columbus/Central Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council Dorsey Hager discussed several important construction issues.
Show host Ed “Flash” Ferenc and Hager talked about residency requirements and how they help local communities put their residents to work. These requirements are often used on major public projects and also can be included in Project Labor Agreements.
PLAs, Hager said, are a useful tool used to ensure a project is completed on time and on budget, helping to eliminate labor issues and ensure only highly skilled and highly trained workers are on a jobsite.
Hager also provided updates on potential projects in central Ohio, including the Sofidel Paper Plant and a proposed NTE Energy Project in Pickaway County.
