VIDEO: Warren Fraleigh of the Building Trades of Alberta
The Journal of Commerce recently travelled to Edmonton, Alberta and spoke to Warren Fraleigh, the new executive director of the Building Trades of Alberta.
With a background as a business manager and as the secretary treasurer with the Building Trades, Fraleigh said he is happy to continue his participation with the organization.
Fraleigh addressed some of the key issues affected the building trades, including labour supply and the need to work with government to streamline the processes that ensure both work for Albertans and Canadians but also make sure that temporary foreign workers, when employed in Canadian projects, are utilized properly.
Fraleigh also said one of the main things he is hearing from his membership is that growth in the province is accelerating, and that the level of activity over the past five to 10 years will continue for the next twenty years.
