MTA Okays CSA as a Preferred Training Provider(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)

The Community Services Agency has been accepted as a preferred training provider by the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), joining the apprenticeship programs of Plumbers and Pipefitters UA Local 5, Iron Workers Local 5, Mid-Atlantic Carpenters Training Centers, and Steamfitters UA 602 approved in the first round for the Purple Line Project. The Economic Empowerment Program Office of MTA will be overseeing workforce development programs with an eye to boosting hiring and training of Maryland residents for these jobs once the project comes on-line. The Baltimore Red Line is also part of this program.  “We are really looking forward to working with MTA and the other employer, non-profit and union partners on this project,” said CSA Executive Director Kathleen McKirchy.  “Through our Building Futures program we have been able to create a pipeline from the community into apprenticeships and jobs in construction, and we expect to continue providing ready-to-work local workers for these jobs.” photo of Building Futures student by Sylvia Casaro
