    Press Release: March 30, 2020

    Labor and Management Create “Care for Construction Heroes” Task Force

    Goal is to keep construction workers safe and healthy during COVID-19 crisis

    Construction industry partners have established a “Care for Construction Heroes” task force to provide an additional resource for field workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. This task force, which includes commercial construction contractors, The Builders’ Association, and labor, will help address the safety- and health-related questions and concerns of those who are performing the construction work so vital and essential to our country’s economic vitality.

    “Commercial contractors, safety and health professionals, and trade unions have protocols in place to help confront the current COVID-19 crisis, but we must stay vigilant to meet the needs of craftspeople and everyone in the field in a way that is true to our values,” said Don Greenwell, President of The Builders’ Association. “While concerns in the field should immediately be raised to someone supervising the job, we must all work to eliminate any potential safety and health issues,” he emphasized.

    “Workers will continue to receive good pay and benefits if our work is done in a healthy way. Strong communication and working with industry partners have helped us stay on top of risks. We are fighting this invisible enemy every day in so many ways in our lives,” said Alise Martiny, Business Manager, Greater Kansas City Building & Trades Council.

    For COVID-19 information specific to construction, The Builders’ Association has established the COVID-19 Resource Center on the home page of their website at www.buildersassociation.com.

    The COVID-19 Resource Center includes safety and health best practices as well as summaries of federal and local laws and orders. For workers with questions and concerns, a hotline has been established at 816.595.4164.

    “It is an understatement to say these are challenging times. There is no playbook on how to manage through this crisis, but we are all in this together. Our contractors are working with us to communicate, monitor and improve,” said Al Bond, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the St. Louis-Kansas City Carpenters Regional Council.

    “All job sites should be transparent when it comes to health and safety,” added Don Greenwell.  “Labor is playing a very important leadership role in collaborating with management to confront the pandemic. Through education, strict health and safety protocols, and open communication, we will continue the vital work of building our communities.”
