The Real Value of Union Construction Trades People in Michigan: It All Starts With Superior Training


How can the Skilled Trades gap in Michigan be filled while assuring projects are on-time, on-budget, with superior quality and where safety is priority #1? The answer: Union Construction Trades People.

Presented by Great Lakes Fabricators & Erectors (GLFEA) this video features the Ironworkers Local 25 Training Center in Wixom, MI and the Operating Engineers 324 Career Center in Howell, MI, including the amazing and unique five-story “Raising Gang” training structure in Howell, MI which was created in 2002 with financial and labor support from GLFEA.

“Priceless, invaluable, indispensable.” Those are just some of the words ironworker and operator apprentices use to describe the opportunity of working with retired Ironworkers and Operators volunteering their time and expertise for this joint training effort.
