    Local unions worried about Bills stadium work going to out-of-town contractors, workers

    February 23, 2023 // Supporters of the use of precast concrete panels say they help speed up construction, reduce site disruption and can trim project costs since they require fewer workers to install. Erie County and state officials have said they expect up to 10,000 people put to work on stadium construction. The precast concrete panels, placed by cranes, are likely being used as a result of a national labor shortage because they do not require the use of as many trades people, Williamson said. But with the help of apprentices, there would be enough local workers to complete hand-laid brick on the stadium's exterior, he added. “To try to design a building and build a schedule around what they think is a labor shortage is not right and missing the whole point of having local labor doing the work,” he said.
