As the construction industry continues to put in place industry-wide safety protocols to reopen jobs that have been shuttered due to the novel coronavirus, the Employment Department has been asking for those members who are willing and able to go to work at this time to give them a call. While there is still over 60% unemployment in our Construction Division with thousands of members temporarily laid off, calling the Employment Department directly will help streamline the process for the Employment Department, which has been working hard with reduced staff.
If you are interested in employment opportunities, please call Employment at 718-591-2000 ext. 1490.
