Reason for The Building Trades to Break the Status Quo labor college

  • Approximately 88% of all construction is “open shop”, momentum is not on our side
  • Our membership is on the decline
  • Labor has precious little public support
  • Labor is “odd man out” with regard to legislative initiative’s being taken on our behalf
  • Bottom-up, top-down and CBA concessions of all types – has not worked
  • 24/50 States RTW and the Building Trades has dwindling funds to fight these initiatives
  • Withdrawal liability of our combined pensions, and the effect of the “sunset provisions in 2014”
  • Obamacare effect on our Health & Welfare Funds going forward – from 2014 on
  • The effect of modularization on construction and for the need of highly skilled tradespersons & overall reduced number of workers needed – in the next decade and beyond  

Brothers & Sisters –

We absolutely can win “if” we break the status quo we are stuck in! We win if we:

  • Quit treating those that want to put us out of business as friends/customers     
  • Organize along the lines of credit, clients & social footprint of the “open shop” & hit em in the pocket book – hard – “out of the box”                               labor college
  • Use technology as only we can & leverage our remaining numbers into a formidable force that can literally affect the construction industry – now – “out of the box”
  • Become the construction manager/general contractors and deal directly with “end-users”/customers and solve the problem – now – “out of the box”
  • Know that modularization is here and adjust to, and become leaders in advancing what is taking place with our training. True value added – “out of the box”
  • Knowing that the politicians will only be back when we raise money/power & membership/votes
  • Re-establish our respect by earning it – in a capitalist society if you’re not fighting for your rights – your dying
  • Leave our “egos at the door” – it’s about winning now! Leaders step forward!
