Training Class Schedule

What Is A Union? It's Simple, Really

Unions are workers who stand together to bargain with their bosses for better pay, safer working conditions and decent benefits.

When workers stand together, we have power. And that power makes the American Dream more possible for everyone.

We need Unions more than ever.

Big corporations and wall street bankers are dismantling the American Dream. Today, the only thing that stands in their way is working people standing together to make sure everyone has a fair shot.

Local 169 at Constructing Colorado Training in Denver

A Local 169 Field Agent and two Reno NROC organizers recently attended a 10-day organizing training campaign in Denver, called Constructing Colorado. LiUNA169 members were (L-R above) Armando Rodriguez, Gary Benedict and Tim Garber.

Training consisted of 14-15 hours a day of class time and research. Gary reports that they did a few hands-on exercises including a march on about 10 job sites in downtown Denver, interaction with non-union workers, and a march on a non-union site run by Mortenson Construction, normally a union contractor.

They also did community outreach to help clean up a park in the name of Constructing Colorado.

The program was to bring more work for union members. About 45 locals were involved.
