IUPAT District Council 82 Meets with Legislators

During the Building Trades Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C., in April, District Council 82 leadership had the opportunity to talk with legislators about the concerns of the union's members and their families. Congressman Keith Ellison invited District Council 82 Business Manager/Secretary-Treasurer Terry Nelson to join him on his We The Podcast broadcast on April 29, and talk about the important role the IUPAT plays in providing training for the next generation of workers in the finishing trades. With a state-of-the-art facility, the Finishing Trades Institute of the Upper Midwest (FTIUM) offers opportunities for apprentices, as well as continuing education available for members to keep skills on the cutting edge and safety a top priority.
