New OWL Skill: Build It Back 80% Skill

The District Council will be working closely with the NYC Build It Back Sandy Program to rebuild areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy.  These are work opportunities especially relevant to Members who live in the affected areas of Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island.  But the work is open to all Members of the NYCDCC.

The District Council recently implemented a new OWL Skill called the Build It Back Sandy 80% PLA Skill. This is a general skill for ALL crafts and involves doing building and repair work on one to three family residential and related structures that were destroyed or damaged by Hurricane Sandy.  The related skills necessary would include many carpentry skills recognized by the OWL, including:

Concrete Forms, Vinyl Siding, Flooring, Window Trim, House Framing

The work is in an area of building and construction that the District Council has not been previously involved, and it is under a PLA paying 80% of the standard rates under applicable collective bargaining agreements.  This is a great opportunity to secure work in a new market in our geographical jurisdiction while giving back to our community.  We encourage all Members who are interested to add this skill to their list of skills on the OWL.
