Milwaukee Building & Construction Trades Council, AFL-CIO

Yesterday I had the honor of addressing the Milwaukee Building Trades members who are building the State Fair Park COVID 19 emergency facility. This projects entails 700-750 beds, oxygen and MEP gas lines, air handling units, nurse call stations, bathroom facilities. Currently over 300 Building Trades members are working around the clock to complete this massive project. This project started April 8th and will be completed between April 18th and April 24th. This is 100% Union project. Thank you to the US Army Corp. of Engineers, Gilbane for choosing to partner with Union Labor to help end this national crisis. Once again in time of need the Building Trades is more than happy to use our skill and knowledge to help improve the lives of others. Thank you to our heroes and our contractors who stepped up to this challenge.

Women make up just 3% of the construction workforce in the field, but we believe that women have a place here. We are proud to have women on our construction sites. They work just as hard as the men on site, adapting to the tasks their superintendents assign them.

Attention Local 599...if you find value in our education system as Union Trades People, please take a minute to help keep standards and regulations a part of our system and avoid the deregulation of the Apprenticeship Programs in the USA.
