Since a unionized workforce has wages negotiated with the contractor before beginning a construction project, customers do not have to worry about hidden costs upon a project’s completion. Prevailing Wage laws not only ensure workers are given fair pay and benefits, but also protect customers by keeping overrun costs low and quality high through utilizing a workforce that is paid properly to do the job right the first time.
Fewer workplace accidents occur on union jobsites because contractors employ workers who receive only the best and most up-to-date training in the building and construction industry. This training also allows for higher levels of productivity because workers can feel secure on a jobsite, increasing the rate at which construction projects are completed on time.
Construction professionals must be certified and licensed to perform the type of work that is to be performed on a jobsite. Unionized labor adheres to strict regulations and building codes enforced by the State of Ohio, which set high standards to ensure projects are constructed properly and safely.
