Labor Law in the Construction Industry

A course offered only once each year to Building Trades leaders, representatives, and organizers - with a national faculty of experts in Construction Labor Law.

Labor Law in the Construction Industry
February 19-24, 2012

National Labor College; Silver Spring, Maryland

For the construction industry, federal labor laws include special provisions. To manage risk effectively, union leaders and staff in the construction industry must be familiar with the legal framework. This course will enable participants to identify union action that can be taken independently, that require legal assistance, or that should be avoided entirely. Topics that will be covered include paths to recognition, including salting, trigger agreements and other innovations; bargaining, including pre-hire and project agreements, multi-employer units and corporate change; traditional and non-traditional pressures, from strikes to corporate campaigns; and preventive maintenance and proactive planning. (3 semester credits)

This course is only open to Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO union members including Ironworkers, Insulators, Boilermakers, IBEW, Teamsters, Bricklayers, Elevator Constructors, Painters, Laborers, Plasterers and Cement Masons, Sheet Metal Workers, Plumbers/Pipefitters, and Roofers.
