“Construction is safest when workers have the benefit of modern training facilities, certifications, on the job training, and wages that recognize their expertise, these are facts Ben Kallos already knew when he toured our training hall. As a Council Member Ben Kallos has fought for training, apprenticeship, and prevailing wage on publicly funded projects through laws he’s co-sponsored, legislation he has authored, and a project by project basis. Kallos authored the law to count every life on a construction, creating fines for disreputable contractors that would hide injuries on the job. As the next Manhattan Borough President Ben Kallos will continue Gale Brewer’s construction safety working group and fight for our city’s working families,” said Patrick Dolan, Jr. President of Steamfitters Local 638.
