Will there be employment opportunities for members of the community?

The general contractor and subcontractors on the project will use personnel from the city’s various trade unions, which also have apprenticeship programs. As part of the project’s equal employment opportunity affirmative action program, the contractor, working through the various trade union apprenticeship programs, will provide on-the-job training aimed at developing candidates toward full journeymen in the type of trade or job classification involved. Interested members of the community can contact the Philadelphia Building Trades Council or any of the region’s construction trade unions for more information on employment possibilities.
