The Association of Union Constructors (TAUC) recently honored Iz Cakrane, Vice President of Labor Relations with URS Energy and Construction, Inc., with its prestigious Spirit of Union Construction Award, reserved for individuals who have dedicated their entire careers to the advancement of the industry.
Mr. Cakrane, who has been involved with union construction for more than four decades, was presented with the award during a special ceremony as part of TAUC’s annual Leadership Conference on May 14, 2015 in Charleston, S.C.
“This award recognizes and celebrates an individual’s lifetime achievements in union construction,” TAUC President Tom Felton said. “But it’s about more than just their career and the titles they’ve held. It’s about the positive impact they’ve had on the people around them. The Spirit of Union Construction Award recognizes someone who has inspired others to do better, to achieve more than they thought possible; someone who has reached out and helped colleagues during times of trouble, and never asked for anything in return; someone whose passion for the industry was evident in everything they did. I know everyone agrees that this description fits Iz Cakrane to a tee.”
