BRIDGEPORT PSEG UNION TRADES FAIR
On Tuesday, October 2nd PSEG hosted its first PSEG Union Trades Fair at Bridgeport’s City Hall Annex. The trades fair was made possible by the Office of Mayor Joe Ganim, and city council members Aidee Nieves, Dennise Taylor Moye, and Jack Banta to expose residents to local career opportunities in the union construction trades.
Local men, women and young adults attended PSEG Union Trades Fair where they discovered the ways a trade can translate into a career. With 14 trade unions and 2 workforce development agencies in attendance, event goers were able gather information on various trades that sparked their interest. Information on internship and apprenticeship opportunities were available to attendees, including PSEG’s Ready2Work program, a free apprenticeship readiness training opportunity for Bridgeport residents.
PSEG believes in supporting the community we live and work in. By providing residents with insight into local opportunities we are strengthening Bridgeport’s workforce and communities.
