N.H. construction firm to build Job Corps center


A New Hampshire construction firm has been awarded a US Department of Labor contract to build a Job Corps Center in Manchester, several years after the project was stalled by contract language that would have required the facility to be built by union labor. US Senator Kelly Ayotte said Wednesday that the contract went to Eckman Construction Co. of Bedford. The residential education and job training complex will serve low-income youth ages 16 to 24, with a focus on homeland security, health care, and hospitality jobs. Planning was stalled in 2009 over a project labor agreement that would have required contractors to negotiate with union officials and abide by collective bargaining agreements.
