Steve Adubato, known among the media as the dean of journalists in New Jersey as well as nationally, recently reached out to John Ballantyne, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters asking him to come on the broadcast show "Caucus: N.J." and talk about the Carpenters. Adubato is a big proponent of education programs and training; this interview presented the Carpenters with a great opportunity to explain the unique skills that Carpenters bring to the construction industry -- and the breadth of support the Carpenters Union provides apprentices as they go through years of training to become a journeyman Carpenter. Ballantyne also discussed how he was inspired to become a Carpenter and what the Union means to him.
