Robert J. Krul Named President of National Maintenance Agreements Policy Committee.

ARLINGTON, Va. -- The National Maintenance Agreements Policy Committee, Inc. (NMAPC), the construction industry's first incorporated labor-management committee, announced today the election of Robert J. Krul as the new president of the organization.

Krul succeeded Mark Ayers, who resigned from the NMAPC leadership position following his election as president of the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO. Ayers replaced the retiring Edward C. Sullivan on October 1, 2007.

The NMAPC administers the National Maintenance Agreement (NMA), a collective bargaining agreement utilized by over 2,500 industrial contractors and employing members of the fourteen participating international building trades unions throughout the United States, generating over 60 million work hours annually.

Stephen R. Lindauer, Impartial Secretary of the NMAPC, applauded the election. "Bob Krul has leadership experience of the highest caliber as past chairman of OSHA's Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH) and has been a strong supporter of the NMAPC program for many years. He is a great choice to take the reigns."

Krul expressed his enthusiasm for the opportunity. "I am honored that my peers have elected me to serve in this important capacity. As president, I look forward to working with the joint Labor-Management Committee to help organized labor, union contractors and owners who utilize the NMA to fully realize the inherent value of the program."

Robert Hoover currently presides as chairman of the management section and Krul will preside as chairman of the labor section. Together, they will serve as co-chairmen of the joint labor-management committee. The president of the labor committee automatically becomes the president of the NMAPC.

As co-chairmen, both Hoover and Krul will spearhead efforts to educate the owner community about the benefits of using building trades craft personnel on industrial maintenance projects and the cost-effectiveness of utilizing an NMA. They will also chair regular joint committee meetings and appoint representatives to standing and special subcommittees of the NMAPC.

Krul is currently the Assistant to the International President for The United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers. He has also served as the Apprenticeship Coordinator, Director of Jurisdiction, and Safety and Health Representative for his International Union.

Krul began his career as a member of Local 74 in Buffalo, New York working as a foreman and estimator for several Western New York roofing contractors.
