Building Skills Partnership, 32BJ, and SEIU Local 1 represent model training funds with a national reach to members of the SEIU union and workers in the property service sector. Our goal is to create opportunities for career advancement for workers while meeting the needs of businesses.
Why Training Funds
Training funds are unique labor-management partnerships supported by contributions negotiated between a labor union and its participating employers. Both parties enter into a training fund agreement because they recognize its win-win benefit. Training funds provide a mechanism for a well-trained and motivated workforce, raising the profile of businesses, and establish career ladder opportunities for workers to reach their full potential.
