The COVID-19 pandemic has created havoc in the country and throughout the State of Ohio. Many industries were shut down and people laid off. Our industry has weathered the storm as an essential business during the entire episode. I am pleased to report to you that your representatives stayed the course the entire time, with all offices open and all staff members working regular hours.

I want to thank everyone for your support in ratifying the OCA/AGC contract extension. The one-year extension with a $1.35 total wage package, less $0.25 to Health and Welfare, is a fair package for contractors and us alike. This package will put us to work and keep us working during these trying times. Thank You! Next year, full negotiations will again take place with the associations for a complete long-term agreement.
