West Virginia Training Centers Grand Re-Opening

On April 6th, 2021, Local 443 celebrated the grand re-opening of the West Virginia Training Center with a ribbon-cutting event. The Eastern Millwright Regional Council completed nearly $1M in renovations to make the training center more accessible for the next generation of Millwrights. Joined by Eastern District VP Bill Waterkotte, Congressman David McKinley, and Parkersburg Mayor Tom Joyce, all shared one resounding message: College is not the only option. An education with the Millwrights is free, provides valuable life skills, and gives you the opportunity to earn while you learn.
