The Sunday Shale Show: Guest Vince Irvin, Statewide Apprenticeship Coordinator, Ohio Laborers’ Union
For The Sunday Shale Show this week, Energy in Depth – Ohio sat down with Mr. Vince Irvin, Statewide Apprenticeship Coordinator, Ohio Laborers’. For over 100 years, the Laborers’ Union has represented construction professionals committed to the highest standards of safety and training.
Mr. Irvin provided insight into what is happening with the Ohio Laborers’ Union, its history, and the benefits shale development is bringing to the region and the union.
When we see a change in that occupation our instructions are teaching our journeyman and apprentices those skill sets. It is really lifelong learning. – Vince Irvin, Ohio Laborers
As Mr. Irvin acknowledges, there is great potential in the future development of our state’s shale deposits, and its potential is recognized worldwide, with more and more interest and investment coming in to the Buckeye State.
For this reason, the Ohio Laborers’ and other organizations (like Energy in Depth) have placed a priority on educating the public about the industry, its practices, and the incredible benefits this continued development will bring for Ohio’s workforce and its communities.
Energy in Depth – Ohio thanks Mr. Irvin for his efforts, and for joining us on The Sunday Shale Show. We look forward to continuing to work with those working directly or indirectly with the oil and gas industry to provide in-depth analysis of what’s taking place in Ohio (and beyond), and what it means for our communities and our state.
Stay tuned for The Sunday Shale Show next week!
