Dave Wondolowoski, Cleveland Building and Construction Trades Council Executive Secretary, and America’s Work Force Radio, host Ed “Flash” Ferenc talked about the upcoming General Election on Nov. 6. The deadline to register to vote is Oct. 9 and Wondolowski encouraged anyone who has not already done so, to register to vote. He predicted Ohio Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate Rich Cordray will win if he gets 450,000 Democratic votes in Cuyahoga County. Besides politics, they also discussed apprenticeships. Wondolowski said there is shortage of apprentices, but his affiliated trades have been able to man projects. With the economy booming, there is a shortage in many industries including manufacturing. The Cleveland Building Trades are sponsoring an apprenticeship fair night on Oct. 24 at the Pipefitters Local 120 Hall in Cleveland from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Besides the apprenticeship fair, Wondolowski discussed some of the area high schools the CBCTC is working with to help bring back a broad range of vocational classes.

Don’t miss Dave Wondolowski, Cleveland Building and Construction Trades Council Executive Secretary, and Ed “Flash” Ferenc, host of America’s Workforce Radio, as they talk about a proposed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rule change that may allow the use of asbestos in certain construction products. Asbestos, a known carcinogen, has been heavily restricted in the U.S., but the Supreme Court struck down a law banning the deadly mineral in the late 1980s. Now, thanks to the potential action of the EPA, the lives of construction workers and anyone they may come into contact with asbestos, may be put at risk by breathing in deadly fibers. They also discussed the impact of Missouri’s repeal of So-Called “Right to Work” legislation and the special election held in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District. According to Wondolowski, these results may signal the start of the “blue wave,” propelling Democrats, such as Rich Cordray to win this November. The segment also includes a discussion about the potential purging of Ohio voters from the registered voters poll and Betty Sutton’s background.
