      We are working with Kelly Group, an online education resource, and have compiled several bundles of online training courses. We will cover the cost of taking these courses for our members. It is our goal to supply our membership with continued opportunities to make themselves more valuable to their contractors and our local halls. After each member is enrolled, they have 1 year to complete the courses in each bundle. That allows each individual to take the courses at their own pace and in the time frame that fits their family’s schedules. Along with skilled topics like Pipe and Concrete, we also have online OSHA available. There are stand-alone online courses for OSHA 10 in English and Spanish, OSHA 10 Road Construction, OHSA 30 in English, or we also have the OSHA 30 bundle that includes not only the basic 10 and 30 courses but also more detailed courses. Laborer journeypersons that are interested in enrolling should contact their local halls and have a training referral sent to the training fund. The comprehensive course bundles include:

      LIUNA Will Never Back up, Never Back Down in the Fight for Racial, Social, and Economic Justice

      Washington, D.C. (June 1, 2020) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – issued the following statement today:

      LIUNA is united in grief and sadness over the heinous and unconscionable killing of George Floyd. Once and for all, we must come together as a nation and as a people, to stamp out and extinguish the flames of bigotry, discrimination, and racial, social, and economic injustice. 

      We stand shoulder to shoulder with all those who are committed to tearing down the walls of inequality and racism that have plagued our nation for far too long. The men and women of LIUNA strongly support the right to peacefully demonstrate, which is a founding principle of our nation, our union, and our society. We condemn the lawless cowards who are exploiting these terrible times - acting with violence and disregard for the values of our democracy. 

      In memory of George Floyd and all those who have tragically and unjustly lost their lives, we must recommit ourselves to the fight to eradicate bigotry and discrimination and to bring about the critical reforms our country so desperately needs. We must never forget that one of the most powerful tools of social change that is available to us—is the ballot box. We must be united in our vigilance and determination to elect leaders at every level of government that reflect our values for justice, equality, and fairness for all.

      TRAINING: When you see a union laborer, you are seeing one of the best-trained, most skilled and most experienced laborers in the construction industry. Many of our members got their start as union laborers with apprenticeship training at the Laborers Training Center in Belton, MO.

      It offers both classroom and hands-on instruction in every discipline a laborer will need to do the dozens of jobs they do. Here's a look at many of the important lessons laborers in Western Missouri and Kansas learn at our Belton Training Center.

      The 500,000 members of the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) that work in building construction, highway and utility construction, and environmental remediation play an important role in the industry.  On nearly every phase and area of these job sites, laborers work independently and assist other craft workers to complete projects.  Laborers often are some of the first workers hired on a project and the last to leave it.

      Skilled craft laborers use numerous skills as they move between many varying tasks with equal ability.  Further, they follow detailed instructions as well as problem solve for themselves.  This unique combination of skill, knowledge and decision making requires considerable technical and mental skills.  Women and minorities make up approximately 50% of the skilled construction laborers work force.  Flexible work schedules are often necessary due to the varying lengths and locations of jobs.  A laborer may be paving a highway for weeks in one county, then working only a few days on a masonry project in another county.  The unpredictability of each project can be both frustrating and exciting.  While some laborers may specialize in one type of work such as environmental remediation, often it is difficult to rely on just that one work classification to provide steady work.  Cross training, therefore, is a way to become more “marketable” for future jobs, and it provides experience and skills necessary to stay on jobs longer. Many laborers because of their ability, versatility, and productivity in performing their work tasks, have been asked by their project supervisor or foreman to move on to the contractor’s next project.
