The South Suburban Action Conference (SSAC) and Gamaliel of Metro Chicago (GMC) want to make sure that workers in the South Suburban and Chicago area to not be left out of the opportunities that have been brought to the community through local transportation and construction projects.
We are building a database of at least 100 workers who are ready to start a career in the transportation and construction trades, and tracking candidate’s skills and what their needs are in order to prepare them for work.
With the “100 Ready Workers” campaign we are also building a table community stakeholders made up of union leaders, contractors, elected officials, and job candidates to work together to make sure that local minorities are being prepared for work and being hired on local jobs. We’re organizing citizens of the metropolitan Chicago area to be prepared to fight for opportunities in our area.
We want to make sure that people in the South Suburban and Chicago area are not left out of these jobs.
