Journeyman Leadership Training

Purpose of Program

The program was developed to give Journeymen a greater understanding of the Brotherhood, our industry, and the important part they can have in influencing the future of our union. By modeling best practices on the job, maintaining a “can do” attitude and mentoring their fellow workers, these leaders have the opportunity to shape those coming up in the Brotherhood to build a stronger future.

Why Journeymen?

This program was developed for Journeymen because:
  • Journeymen, who have good skills and a positive “can-do” attitude, have the potential to become our Brotherhood’s front line leaders in the field.
  • Journeymen, who have good skills and a positive “can-do” attitude set the example on the job and have the biggest influence on those coming up in our union, especially with our apprentices.
  • By strengthening the leadership skills of our Journeymen, we can help ensure a stronger future. Journeymen are our future leaders in the organization.
