More and more people who are familiar with the union construction and maintenance industry are reporting a union craft labor shortage. The degree of that shortage continues to grow. It’s not something that has come out of the blue. Back in 2006, we were already talking about the problem that we would face during the coming years having to compete with all other industries to attract the qualified new entrants needed to replace retiring workers. That’s why this issue of Partners in Progress—and the next one—will focus on workforce issues and what labor and management can do to ensure that we deliver for our current customers and have the ability to expand into new markets.
