PITTSBURGH—The Community College of Allegheny County will present “Employee Real Estate Construction Trust Funds,” a labor and management discussion taking place from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2, at Boyce Campus. Featured panelists will include Bill Hunt, president and chief executive officer, The Elmhurst Group; William C. Ligetti Jr., executive director, Ironworker Employers Association of Western Pennsylvania, Inc.; James Noland, chairman, PenTrust Real Estate Advisory Services, Inc.; and Richard Stanizzo, business manager, Pittsburgh Regional Building & Construction Trades Council.

The discussion will explore how using union building trade pension fund assets has helped to finance some of the region’s most well-known developments, including Bakery Square, Airside Business Park, the Regional Learning Alliance and many others. In return, these investments guaranteed the employment of union workers on job sites while replenishing and enhancing their pension funds.

The event is the latest in the college’s Robert M. Mill Lecture Series, Pittsburgh Labor & Management Past & Future: A Labor-Management Discussion. This event provides a forum in which individuals with diverse viewpoints can gather to discuss the impact that labor-management relations have on the region and the economy. The event will take place at the CCAC Boyce Campus Performance Hall, 595 Beatty Road, Monroeville, Pa., 15146.

The discussion is free and open to the public, but reservations are requested by Friday, April 28. For more information or to register, call 412.237.4412 or email LaborManagement@ccac.edu. Pittsburgh Labor & Management Past & Future: A Labor-Management Discussion embodies a series of interactive sessions designed to foster a sustained dialogue on economic development issues facing the region by bringing together members of labor and management to share their perspectives and expertise.

Mill Lecture Series, part of the CCAC Labor & Management Institute, offers a platform for open communication among all who will benefit from a future of positive labor-management relations and economic development in Western Pennsylvania.
