Throughout Ohio’s history, manufacturing has played a vital role in the state’s economy.
From heavy industrial manufacturing to light manufacturing, millions of Ohioans have helped build a wide array of different products used in numerous industries.
Without the help of ACT Ohio members, Ohio’s manufacturing sector would not be as successful as it is today.
Tradesmen and tradeswomen have not only built some of the state’s most important manufacturing facilitates, but they have also performed the critical task of maintaining and renovating them.
Chemical companies, steel makers, automotive companies and other manufacturers have utilized Project Labor Agreements to ensure only ACT Ohio members work on their projects, providing the utmost value.
Business owners understand the savings gained when choosing to build with union construction workers. A project done right the first time will provide major savings – including savings on long-term maintenance costs.
By doing so, they are helping to reduce unnecessary downtime, which means their businesses can be back up and running in less time than if they relied on unskilled labor.
By using our signatory contractors, project owners can be assured the work is performed safely, which keeps projects on or ahead of schedule.
The state’s largest manufacturers use ACT Ohio members on their projects because it benefits their bottom line by saving them money.
Honda of America has entered into a Project Labor Agreement with a local building trades council for a major project at one of their Ohio facilities. The Columbus/Central Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council and Honda of America signed a PLA for a $210 million project that will make the Marysville Auto Plant (MAP) Honda’s most energy efficient facility.
