Great Month for IUPAT in Texas

The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades is aligning all efforts to grow our union in the Lone Star State, and May was good month for our training programs.

First, the IUPAT District Council 88 Training Center opened its expanded facilities in Houston to great fanfare.  With a focus on industrial painting training to meet the workforce needs in the area, IUPAT international leaders gathered with local members to celebrate the new facilities.

However, the festivities didn’t stop the training and the work at hand to grow the IUPAT.
