The Indiana Laborers’ District Council is investing $2.5 million in its training facility in Bedford. Business Manager David Frye said the funding will support extensive enhancements to the center and the future of high quality construction in Indiana.
“The Indiana Laborers’ Union is investing in the future of our membership, the State of Indiana, and ensuring that the Laborers’ Union is positioned to meet the needs of our contractors and the rapidly changing construction market,” said Frye.
The training program is run by the Indiana Laborers’ Training Trust Fund Board of Trustees, which is made up of contractor and union representatives.
An open house will be held April 23 and include full tours of the 170-acre training facility’s new updates.
“We are proud to share this important occasion with our friends in the Indiana construction industry. We intend to be on the leading edge of training the next generation of a highly skilled union workforce by providing a world class learning experience for our current and future members,” said Director of the Indiana Laborers’ Training Trust Fund Sean Coakley.
The Indiana Laborers’ Training Trust Fund began in 1968 and serves over 1,500 apprentices throughout Indiana.
