22 Union Contractors Working in Minnesota Receive 'Safety Driven' Awards

According to Minnesota LECET (Laborers Employers Cooperation and Education Trust), there are currently more than 11,000 skilled construction laborers working on highway and commercial construction and environmental and public works projects throughout Minnesota and North Dakota. Through its "Safety Driven" incentive program, the union recently recognized 22 signatory contractors comprised in that number, saying they exemplified "the essence of construction site safety."

The incentive program offers quarterly and annual award recognitions throughout the year culminating in the Annual Laborers Award during the fall of each year, where one union laborer will be randomly drawn for the annual recognition award. "We are very pleased with the significant response by union contractors to become part of Safety Driven," said Minnesota LECET Chairman Ron Thornburg. "Safety is important to both the union members and contractors to ensure the health of workers and in building high quality construction."
