The project is expected to employ up to 180 crane operators. Most of these will be RTs or carry-deck (Broderson) type cranes requiring the CCO TSS or TLL certification. The Homeland Security check can be completed over the phone simply by providing some basic information. The drug test will be conducted using a hair follicle as opposed to giving a urine sample.
The hair-follicle test will detect substance use from months past instead of weeks past. White Construction will be the contractor for this work. Matt assures me that any Local 139 member who applies and is qualified will likely receive a call for this work. In the past we had 12 of our members go to Detroit for a shutdown for a month. All reported that they were treated very well.
Tip for travelling out of state: Some members have reported great savings finding a house to rent on Craig's list as opposed to renting a room. This savings increased when they were willing to share the house with other Operating Engineers. If you contact Local 324 for this work and are interested in making your name available to fellow 139 members going to the project, let me know. Pass along your email address and phone number to me and I will attempt to put you all in contact with one another.
