Consumers Energy, a natural gas and electric utility, and the Utility Workers Union of America, or UWUA, have opened a new training center in Potterville, Michigan. The 10,000-square-foot training center in Potterville, southwest of Lansing, features seven classrooms and related labs. There, employees will build and sharpen their skills in meter reading, gas service appliance repair and other natural gas- and electric-related service fields. The center grew from an agreement last year between Consumers Energy and the Utility Workers Union. The UWUA Power for America Training Trust Fund leased an existing Potterville office building, and it is also moving its home office from Southfield to the location. The building was remodeled entirely by Michigan labor. The union will provide training to as many as 2,500 Consumers Energy employees it represents.
