The Niagara Falls City Council issued a proclamation at the Wednesday July 24, 2013 council meeting recognizing Laborers’ Local 91 for their: contribution to the labor movement; building an education and training center; commitment to Niagara Falls and Niagara County.

“Local 91 is a partner and an asset to our city, county and region,” said Council Chairman Glenn Choolokian. “Local 91 has worked cooperatively with the private and government sectors to create jobs and build our community, their education and training center is a state of the art facility that is known across the country.”

The Armand E. Sabitoni Education and Training Facility - located at the 4500 Witmer Industrial Estates - is owned and operated by Laborers’ Local 91. Local 91 is a member of the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA). The community training facility provides workers with an opportunity to acquire the skills and knowledge to compete in today’s workplace. Building construction, heavy equipment operation, environmental remediation, demolition, weatherization and green construction are some of the education and training subject areas.

“Local 91 and Dick Palladino, their business manager, have generously offered to assist our city workforce in receiving training in a number of areas. That offer is much appreciated,” said Glenn Choolokian. “I have consistently found this union to be responsive and sincerely interested in working to make our city and county a better place to live, work and do business.”

The City Council proclamation recognized Mr. Palladino “...for his tireless efforts in representing Local 91, for his unending drive to develop the training and education capacity of Local 91, and for his sincere work to build the American labor movement and the Niagara Frontier.”
