Organizational sketch: The Central Ohio Council of Organized
Construction, commonly known as Operation MOST, resulted from a
memorandum signed by thirty central Ohio construction, labor,
and management organizations in December 1976. The purpose of
Operation MOST ( Management and Organized Labor Striving Together)
is, " to create and maintain a productive building climate" in
central Ohio. The memorandum creating Operation MOST is not
legally binding. Contractors pledge to employ union labor, and
unions agree to eliminate inefficient work practices and promise
that no work time will be lost over jurisdictional disputes.
Many major construction efforts in central Ohio have been desig-nated
as Operation MOST job sites, including the Ohio Center
project, the Honda plant in Marysville, and the Anchor Hocking
Corp. plant addition in Lancaster. Due to its success, Operation
MOST is gaining national recognition and is endorsed by the
National Construction Employers Council.
