You’ll want to hear Columbus/Central Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council Executive Secretary-Treasurer Dorsey Hager, as he makes his monthly appearance on America’s Work Force Union Podcast. Hager and AWF host Ed “Flash” Ferenc discussed the building boom currently going on in and around the capital of the Buckeye state. Most of the work involves building tech company warehouses and data centers, with other notable projects including the OSU Wexner Medical Center tower, the downtown Hilton Hotel expansion and more. Despite COVID-19, the C/COBCTC had another record year in 2020 and he believes 2021 may result in even more manhours. One of the keys to boom is brining more people into the building trades, which his affiliated unions are doing. Programs such as Building Futures and Driving Futures are making a difference by bringing members of the underserved community into the building trades.
