Kalkreuth Attends National Union Meetings in DC
DECEMBER 6-8, 2016 — Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal (KRSM) employees attended The Association of Union Constructor’s (TAUC) State of the Union Construction Industry Forum in Washington DC. The forum focused on legislative, regulatory, and business topics vital to union construction and provided an opportunity to network with owners, contractors, and union leaders.
KRSM attendees included company President John Kalkreuth, MD division VP Dave Hesse, Human Resources Director Seth Abraham, National Sales Manager Jim Brinsky, and MD division Business Development Manager Andrew VanLandingham.
“Being involved with TAUC at a high level is critical to our future as a union roofing company,” Kalkreuth commented. ”The opportunity to engage in national union dialogue is invaluable.”
TAUC acts as an advocate for union contractors by enhancing cooperation between the union, the contractor, and the owner/client. By encouraging consistent communication, many potential issues and delays are often avoided before work even begins. This dialogue also paved the way for the National Maintenance Agreement (NMA), the terms of which are agreed upon by unions and contractors for work on industrial maintenance and construction projects.
