The purpose of this process is to build upon workforce development efforts more efficiently and transparently. This feature is to benefit signatory contractors to Ohio Laborers’ District Council and Laborers’ Local Building & Utility agreements. We strive to instill in all of our Apprentices – a strong work ethic, character, and morals. To that end, please check with the Local Union prior to your candidate search – as they may already have Apprentices available for work.
