Warren Hallam, construction manager for Parsons Construction, builder of the bridge, hailed the role of AFL-CIO Building Trades unions in providing the skilled workers needed on the project. The firm assigned 48 of its own employees and hired 167 subcontractors who worked a total 85,000 hours on the job, he said. “All of the unions were fully cooperative,” Hallam told the World. “We didn’t know how many workers with the necessary crafts and skills would be available here on the Olympic Peninsula but the workers all came forward from day one with the level of skill we needed. They came straight out of the union halls with excellent training in their apprenticeship programs. They were all paid the prevailing wage.”
