Pittsburgh Mayor signs executive order on responsible contracting, job training efforts

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto was joined by the Builders Guild of Western Pennsylvania and Oxford Development Co. Wednesday to announce an Executive Order to support the local construction industry and new job training opportunities in the city.

The Responsible Contracting order calls for a creation of a labor-management task force that will study ways to assist new businesses that want to invest in the city, support redevelopment in underserved neighborhoods, connect reputable contractors with local construction opportunities, write policy, and connect residents with the training necessary to find good-paying jobs in the construction industry.
