Labor Managment Cooperation

Encouraging Harmonious Working Relations

ACT Ohio union members work with their employing contractors in labor-management cooperation coalitions (LMCC) so that there are always open lines of communication between employees and employers, which helps minimize labor strife and foster working environments where work costs and delays are minimized.

Working together allows Ohio’s union industry to maximize construction-project productivity, which helps ensure customers will consistently receive superior work.

ACT Ohio union members look to improve the relationship with their signatory employers so they can become more competitive by implementing programs that increase employment opportunities while jointly promoting the value of labor.

The LMCC is an effective tool on improving communication between representatives of labor and management, with the ultimate goals of improving working relationships, developing training standards, fostering safe and healthy working conditions, and marketing union construction.
