The Importance of Soft Skills Highlighted by Union Contractors

Contractors responsible for building the International Operating Engineers’ new training and conference facility in Houston held a special jobsite meeting with 80 members of Local 551 to review the soft skills that are needed to make the project successful.

General Contractor W.S. Bellows and interior systems contractors Standard Drywall and Odom Construction joined with Council Representatives Jesse Rico, Rigo Davila and Terry Darling to talk with the crews about jobsite attitude, job performance, and the history and pride of the carpenters union.

A good Q&A was held in both English and Spanish and the crews were treated to pizza during the event.
