The Future Looks Good — Let’s Make The Best of It

The New York Building Congress Report released late this past fall is a window to what has been happening in our construction sector and a predictor of what we may expect through 2016. The future looks good. (See the feature article on page 16.)

With $35.6 billion in construction spending forecast for 2016 investment is poised to far outpace previous spending which topped out at $32 billion. This should generate an estimate of 127,200 jobs for 2016, the second highest level of industry employment in at least two decades.  Let’s make sure the vast majority is through union contractors.

And while non-residential construction has not kept pace over the past several years, it is expected to grow to $10.3 billion in 2015 and 9.6 billion in 2016.  But now we have to fully live up to these positive estimates and claim our fair share in the very competitive New York City marketplace.

Compliance

         We are all aware of the painful process of implementing 1 and 2 man job reporting with the New York City District Council of Carpenters.  A revised policy and action plan has been put into place.  The responsibility for reporting time worked is now on the contractor rather than an appointed timekeeper.  Time must now be electronically reported by the contractor on pay day of every week via the electronic portal.  

This policy does not however, change the responsibility of the contractor to notify the District Council before the start of each job.  The District Council will offer sufficient education to contractors and union members in order to facilitate compliance as well as accurate records.  For additional information see http://www.nycdistrictcouncil.com. -- Mike Weber
