Re: Trades Women Build Nations Conference
Thank you for your continued engagement and involvement in our Union, specifically by representing the Insulators Union at the North Americas Building Trades Unions (NABTU) Trades Women Build Nations Conference.
Since the State Building Trades Council of California held the first women’s conference in 2002 the number of tradeswomen attending has grown dramatically. I am happy to report that the Insulators were represented at last year’s conference by 114 Sisters and 28 Brothers from our Local Unions. The feedback from the delegates sent has been very positive, commenting that the conferences have been both informative and inspirational.
The goal of this conference is to support women in the construction industry, to promote recruitment of new women and to advance women’s leadership on the job and in their Locals. This year, the conference will be held virtually, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Insulators Union will be holding a trade caucus for our Sisters to join on Friday, October 16th at 8pm ET. Due to the virtual nature, there will be no cost to attend this meeting and registration will be conducted for each member individually. Please find the registration form below.
The NABTU sponsored event will be held on Saturday, October 17. The details and information for this event will be released by NABTU at a later date. The Insulators Union will keep all available information online, click here to proceed to that page.
Our goal is to continually train and educate our members to be the best workforce, and we expect this event will benefit our Sisters and our Locals well into the future.
