New Civic Leadership Academy
Cohort Begins

We kicked off the 5th cohort of our Civic Leadership Academy on Saturday, June 8 with union members from every background and industry. We are set to train a record number of graduates this year with our next cohort scheduled to begin in the fall. Information on our next cohort will be available soon.

Women Build LA/OC

It’s no secret that women are a small minority in the Building Trades. Currently, women make up only 3% of the construction workforce. Our sisters and brothers of the LA/OC Building and Construction Trades Councils are working to change that with the Second Annual Women Build LA/OC Conference held on Saturday, June 1.

Tradeswomen taught workshops, led discussions, and informed young women of the opportunities that come with a good trade union job.
