The Ontario Construction Secretariat is the liaison between the unionized trades and employers in Ontario, so their CEO, Robert Bronk, is well positioned to discuss the big topic bedeviling all of us these days – skilled labour supply. Bronk used to train glaziers, so he knows this industry. We had a wide-ranging conversation about the sources of the present skilled trades shortage; the need for greater awareness in Ontario’s schools and homes; the effects of the pandemic and recovery; the outcomes of pandemic-fighting measures on Ontario jobsites; prediction for inflation and supply shortages; and much more.
