    Las Vegas companies vie for qualified construction workers- By Alana Roberts , Las Vegas SUN
    Jim Sala, director of organizing for the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, said the union has seen major growth among its ranks. He said membership in the union's three Southern Nevada unions is reaching 8,000 and there are currently 1,259 apprentices involved in the union's four-year training program.

    'We have in the last four years tripled the number of apprentices we have in our program,' Sala said. 'We've grown quite a bit. We've also increased our minority participation.'
