To members, successful training means growing your membership, building pride in your union, in your profession, and forging a greater confidence in yourself and your brother and sister coworkers on the job-site.
To organizing, effective training is the tantalizing carrot that all, even the non-union, so crave, even if they previously didn’t want to pay for it. If training can woo them in, that means more members, more man-hours, a more sustainable pension fund, an adequately funded health and welfare fund, and just a better atmosphere all around.
