It's All About the Schooling
New York City construction union workers are trained better, they do their jobs better, and that's why the buildings they build are better.
New York concrete workers have perfected the art of the 2-day floor cycle in which a new floor is added to a structure every two days. It's a remarkable feat that saves time and money for the developer and produces top-grade results for the people using the building. This is just one of the many points that make them the best-trained concrete men and women in the world.
Every New York concrete union man and woman has completed a grueling 4,000-hour on-the-job apprenticeship that adds 300 more classroom hours. And they must undergo additional brush-up training annually to keep their certificates. These union workers are the best trained in the world.
