CAWV MEMBERS PARTICIPATE IN JOB FAIR

 

The West Virginia Department of Transportation and the Division of Highways held a construction job fair Wednesday for people looking for jobs in related fields. There were a total of twenty-two organizations including businesses, unions, government offices and advocacy groups spent five hours meeting attendees at The Prosperity Center about job and on-the-job training opportunities.

 

Aryeri Batista, an equal employment opportunity specialist with the state Department of Transportation, said construction is not a field with diverse employment field. “When we audit (companies), we notice they’re having problems with being equal to everybody,” she said. “West Virginia doesn’t have the diversity that other states may have.” Batista said the reaching out to minorities and females are issues she is focusing on tackling to improve the workforce.

 

One group Batista mentioned was West Virginia Women Work, a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive programs and training for women interested in entering the construction and manufacturing fields. “It’s time for us to not just be the one smacking your hand saying, ‘You’re not being in compliance,” she said. “We need to close the gap. We need to bring other contractors and bring potential employees, especially here in West Virginia where the unemployment is not where we would like it to be.”

 

West Virginia is tied at having the 14th highest unemployment rate in the country with 4.8 percent in April, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The national unemployment rate is 4.4 percent. (Reprinted from 5/25/17 MetroNews article.)

 

The CAWV members at the fair included: Bear Contracting, Bridgeport; Kokosing Construction, South Charleston; Mid Atlantic Maintenance, Mineral Wells; Mountaineer Contractors, Kingwood; Orders Construction, Saint Albans and Triton Construction, Saint Albans. The CAWV also participated.

 

WVDOH June Specifications Committee Meeting - Input Requested

 

The WVDOH has provided the CAWV notice of their next Specifications Committee meeting which is scheduled for Wednesday, June 7, 2017. Comments are requested on these specification changes and Project Specific Special Provisions. They may be submitted via e-mail to: DOHSpecifications@wv.gov. Please share your comments by June 2, 2017 so that they can be reviewed/discussed at the meeting.  CAWV members may also elect to send any comments directly to the association at pat@asphaltwv.com. The CAWV will then compile all comments received and submit them on behalf of industry.

 

A copy of the agenda has been posted online at the Specifications Committee website:  www.transportation.wv.gov/highways/contractadmin/specifications/SpecComit/Pages/default.aspx. On the specification page, open the June meeting file to see the agenda and specification proposals. Members will find several items of interest, including those pertaining to concrete, asphalt, guardrail, traffic control, bridge decks, mobilization and much more. Please take time to look over these proposals and to share with others in your organization.  Again, we encourage you to provide us or the WVDOH input.

 

WV TRUCK WEIGHT WORKSHOPS OFFERED STATEWIDE

 

Beginning June 6, a series of eleven truck weight workshops are being promoted by the WVDOH and FHWA in cooperation with the WV Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) at WVU.  Members who have participated in pilot workshops found the material presented to be of value and recommend the training.  There is a link provided for registration and there is no cost to attend.

 

Anyone involved in transporting materials to and from jobsites will find this workshop of interest and it is highly recommended for load/scale personnel, supervisors/foreman, trucking companies and drivers/dispatchers, estimators and others involved in transportation.

 

Attendees may be surprised to learn how complex it can be to determine load limits in West Virginia based on highway types, vehicle type, tires and bridge limits. We encourage members to participate in the training and to invite others with whom you work to participate in the workshops.  Click here for more details including the dates and locations of the workshops. The workshop dates have been added to the schedule, see this week’s Schedule for dates and locations.
