OPINION: Avoid shoddy work by using unionized tradespeople for public construction projects
A number of municipalities, school boards, social housing corporations and other public bodies have longstanding arrangements that see their construction projects built by skilled tradespeople who are members of our province’s major construction unions.
Why have these relationships stood the test of time? Because the employees are well trained, they work safer and, in the long run, are not a significantly greater cost to the taxpayer than their non-unionized counterparts.
