Construction Career Expo

Council Representatives of Local 443 and Local 219 joined Governor Carney of Delaware at the Construction Career Expo this past Monday, September 23rd. This event, hosted at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware, promoted and showcased careers in the trades to Junior High School students and the public. We brought in our virtual welder technology and virtual headsets to give the kids a feel of what being a Millwright is truly like. This was a great event to relay our Union message to local politicians and to further our connections with high schools and colleges to introduce education opportunities to the next wave of Millwrights.
