The overview by Continuum Capital set the stage for a broader discussion by a panel of the UCWA Leadership Team, where representatives from Michels Corporation, Atmos Energy, Miller Pipeline and Vermeer Corporation discussed initial UCWA strategy and activities.
It was also suggested that training programs may exist that could warrant UCWA endorsement.
The UCWA currently includes a mix of contractors, utilities and equipment manufacturers, and while the players are competitors in the field, all have put aside their corporate agenda for the betterment of the overall industry.
UCWA is working to identify areas (both geographic and industry-specific) where workers are needed, and where they can be found.
UCWA's Leadership Team, Planning Team and a number of Implementation Teams are developing and implementing strategy, tactics and actions in local areas.
