Vermont Building Trades Says It Will Be Closely Monitoring Who Is Doing Stimulus Project Work

The Vermont Building Trades (a coalition of trade unions) reports its members will be closely monitoring who is being hired to conduct federal stimulus work in Vermont, both contractor and employees. The coalition is working to enact a "responsible contractor" mandate for Vermont, meaning the State would have to hire only contractors who pay their employees a fair wage and offer them decent benefits.

VSEA stands in solidarity with the Building Trades and we look forward to assisting you in any way we can!
