Carpenters and millwrights needed for FM Diversion project

(Fargo, ND) -- Recruiting is underway for about 200 carpenters and millwrights who will be needed to work on the FM Diversion project.

"So this type of project is long in scale.  They expect it to last about four or five years.  It's significantly challenging in terms of the engineering and design of it.  So we feel like we have the work force.  We have the ability to recruit the workers to do that work," said Adam Duininck, Director of Government Affairs for the North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters.   

Duininck is looking for experienced carpenters and young people looking to enter the field of carpentry to work on the diversion project.  It's a $2.75 billion multi-year project.  During the expected peak of construction in 2024, roughly 800 workers will be needed.  Preliminary work on the project is already underway.  Duininck estimates the pay plus benefits for carpenters and mill workers hired for the project at roughly $50 an hour.
