NYC Launches Pathways To Industrial And Construction Careers (PINCC)
Help is on the way for New Yorkers seeking a union job in the transportation sector. The Consortium for Worker Education and partners in government, labor, and business are launching a new workforce training program, New York City Pathways to Industrial and Construction Careers (PINCC).
The program is funded by a grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration’s Good Jobs Challenge, which is investing $500 million into workforce development programs across the country, including $18.6 million to New York City.
PINCC is led by the New York City Human Resources Administration, which provides cash and other assistance to low-income New Yorkers. The grant will allow HRA and CWE to provide the holistic wraparound services that working people need to succeed while they train for good-paying careers. The Building and Construction Trades Council and DC37 are also receiving funding for construction and public sector workforce development programs under the grant. Read more in LaborPress!
