  • Drug-Free Workforce: Affiliate collective bargaining agreements require that 100% of ACT Ohio’s more than 92,000 skilled craftspeople are subject to random, mandatory drug testing, in addition to annual mandatory testing. This requirement helps protects lives and helps protect the bottom line for contractors, construction managers, developers and design-builders who are ensured they have an unimpeded and fully engaged workforce on their construction projects.
