10 Reasons Why You Need A Union Where You Work

10 Reasons Why You Need A Union Where You Work

Make Your Job Better Make It Union

The construction industry is booming and there's a nationwide shortage of workers who can get the job done.  So there's never been a better time for you to gain a fairer share of the profits you're producing, and make your construction job a good union job.  By joining together with your co-workers and forming a union where you work, you're paving the way to higher pay, better benefits and a much more secure future.

Helmets To Hardhats

Helmets To Hardhats

Serve Your Country, Secure Your Future, Building North America

Helmets to Hardhats is a national, nonprofit program that connects National Guard, Reserve, retired and transitioning active-duty military service members with skilled training and quality career opportunities in the construction industry.

The program is designed to help military service members successfully transition back into civilian life by offering them the means to secure a quality career in the construction industry.

Most career opportunities offered by the program are connected to federally-approved apprenticeship training programs. Such training is provided by the trade organizations themselves at no cost to the veteran. No prior experience is needed; in fact, most successful placements start with virtually no experience in their chosen field. All participating trade organizations conduct three to five year earn-while-you-learn apprenticeship training programs that teach service members everything they need to know to become a construction industry professional with a specialization in a particular craft. And, because these apprenticeship programs are regulated and approved at both federal and state levels, veterans can utilize their Montgomery G.I. Bill benefits to supplement their income while they are learning valuable skills and on the job training.

In 2007, Helmets to Hardhats supplemented its existing program with a disabled American veteran program known as the “Wounded Warrior” program, which serves to connect disabled veterans with employment opportunities in the construction industry and the careers that support construction.
