Labor Rising’s Latest Review of the 70 Plus Reviews to Date & Numbers –


On behalf of the Tri-State Building and Construction Trades Council, thank you for your excellent work and passion developing the Labor Rising Foundation Class.

During our class last week we had a diverse group of several different trades in attendance.  Every one of them concluded that the methods discussed added many new tools to their tool box.  Your technical partner, Danny Woodman of Leading Labor, opened every eye in the room to today’s technology available that was easy for any layman to understand.  As a person who has been a full time Organizer, then a Business Agent of a 700 member local union to now a Building Trades Council Business Manager, I feel no matter which capacity you serve your local union or council, you will pick up many new methods and technologies, you will also get a better understanding of where we are today in this class to not only gain market share but also make your job easier and your union run much more efficiently!

Our group plans to follow up with a good Microsoft Excel class; purchase the research videos and follow up with a strategic plan to gain market share with the many subjects shared.  I will keep you informed of our progress and I highly recommend that every Building Trades leader open their eyes to today’s technology and materials displayed by Labor Rising.

Again, thank you for a job well done!

Mark Johnson
