Ted Martocchio Scholarship

Please note that there is a $1,000.00 scholarship available from the Connecticut State College University Foundation.  The scholarship was created in 2000 in memory of Ted.  It is available only to children of a Connecticut State Building Trades member.  It is only available for attendance at Eastern, Western, Southern, or Central State Universities.  The deadline for applications is May 3, 2019.

CEU Class Added

In order to accommodate Local 35 members who still need to take their Continuing Education Class, the JATC is adding two more classes.  They will be held on Veteran's Day, Wednesday, November 11, 2020.

There will be a morning and afternoon class.  Class size will be very small due to social distancing requirements.

Additional Continuing Education Classes

The first set of CEU classes being held at Local 35 are full.  In addition, the JATC will be holding sessions at Local 42's new building located at 20 Craftsman Road in East Windsor.  The classes will be primarily for Local 42 members, but we can put some Local 35 members in.

The classes are ALL Saturday mornings, from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon.

What is a PLA?

A Project Labor Agreement (PLA), also known as a Community Workforce Agreement, is an agreement between a building owner or a municipality and a building trades council. The agreement specifies wages, work conditions, and hiring goals for construction projects. Having a PLA for Connecticut building projects adds many advantages including providing consistency for your budget, skilled workforce needs, and meeting timelines. PLAs are commonly used for school construction, new developments, and partnerships with public entities.
