Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

Regards,

Trump To Labor Unions: ‘An Open Door At The White House’

06/09/2017

President Donald Trump reiterated his commitment to the American worker during an infrastructure speech in Cincinnati, Ohio Wednesday.

“As long as I am president, America’s labor leaders will always find an open door at the White House,” the president said to chorus of applause during his speech along the banks of the Ohio River.

“It’s time to recapture our legacy as a nation of builders and to create new lanes of travel and discovery and we’re going to see all the way into the future,” Trump said. “And the future is going to be bright.”

The president acknowledged three labor leaders present at his speech in Cincinnati, including Sean McGarvey, president of North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU), Eric Dean, president of the United Iron Workers and Terry O’Sullivan, president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America.

“It’s time to rebuild our country, to bring back our jobs, restore our dreams, and yes, it’s time finally to put America first,” the president said. Trump’s constant criticism of America’s trade policies was a top reason he won the presidency, appealing to working class voters in the rust-belt states of Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan.

A CNN exit poll following the 2016 Presidential Election revealed that Trump carried 42 percent of voters in union households, compared to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 51 percent. Trump did 10 points better than Gov. Mitt Romney did in the 2012 presidential campaign.

Labor leaders struggled to square their support for Clinton during the campaign, ignoring large swaths of rank and file union member support for Trump.

The president was in Cincinnati as part of what the White House is touting as “infrastructure week.”
