The inaugural IUPAT Coatings and Glazing Forum launched with great success as the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades welcomed leaders, specialists and contractors from the glazing and industrial painting industries to our Hanover, Maryland campus.
In the afternoon, IUPAT General President James Williams Jr. led a discussion with the leadership of the Painters and Allied Trades LMCI, the International Finishing Trades Institute and the IUPAT Job Corps. A panel of representatives from the U.S. Department of Labor and other government agencies held a panel discussion on U.S. government departmental initiatives that have an impact on union labor while taking questions from attendees. The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades will be holding forums like this one throughout the United States and Canada to further engage provincial, state and local leaders on how we are more than just a union representing men and women in our crafts – we are leaders in our communities and industries.
