Building Trades Restructuring Takes Effect

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Goodbye WBCTC, hello CHOICE. The Washington DC Building Trades Council (WBCTC) has been restructured and, as of July 1, is now C.H.O.I.C.E., the Community Hub for Opportunities in Construction Employment. C.H.O.I.C.E is an alliance of 28 local unions in the greater Baltimore and Washington, DC region that represent thousands of skilled craft professionals in the building and construction industry. “Its mission is to work with industry, government and community leaders to raise standards and provide opportunity,” says Executive Director Mark Coles. “By encouraging public and private investments in the construction industry that will provide continued and increased access to career training and employment, C.H.O.I.C.E  will promote opportunities through partnerships in pre-apprenticeship and jointly managed apprenticeship programs throughout the greater Baltimore and Washington, DC region while providing value to the industry and strengthening the communities in which we live and work.” See also:
