SWEENEY ANNOUNCES BUILDING TRADES HOTLINE FOR THOSE IN NEED OF HELP CLEARING THEIR HOMES, BUSINESSES
Call 732-499-0100 To Request Help
TRENTON – Senate President Steve Sweeney today announced that he has partnered with the New Jersey State Building and Construction Trades Council to implement a hotline homeowners and business owners impacted by Hurricane Sandy can call to request clean-up assistance from qualified tradesmen and women.
The New Jersey State Building and Construction Trades Council represents union bricklayers, carpenters, masons, electricians, ironworkers, laborers, plumbers and roofers, among others. Residents impacted by the storm can call the council at 732-499-0100 to request help in clearing their homes and businesses from storm debris.
Sweeney proposed the statewide hotline to Building Trades Council President Bill Mullen. They said the service is most important as New Jerseyans continue the process of cleaning from Sandy, when the task may seem most daunting.
“New Jersey will be rebuilt, but before we can rebuild we need to remove everything Sandy threw at us,” said Sweeney (D-Gloucester/Cumberland/Salem). “The most daunting part of dealing with a disaster can be the clean-up, when the sights of ruined homes and businesses are their most overwhelming. The men and women of New Jersey’s building trades can ensure that homeowners get the real help they need to clean up so they can begin to rebuild. I thank Bill Mullen for partnering with me to get New Jersey’s union labor to work for those hit hard by this storm.”
“The men and women of New Jersey’s building trades are ready to help get our state back on its feet,” said Mullen. “I urge people to call us to get the hand they desperately need to get the clean up done quickly and done right. With us, people know they are getting union labor that isn’t afraid of putting in the work that needs to be done. All people need to do is call us, and we’ll work within our network of qualified trades to get them the right folks for the job they need as soon as possible. I thank the Senate President for coming to us with this idea, and for working with us to get it going.”
Sweeney and Mullen said laborers will be available to help in all regions of the state.
