Creating Super Foreman Workshop – PHCC @ Ferguson Plumbing
Jul 7 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

The project foreman needs to be much more than just a talented journeyman who knows how to “go fast.” The foreman is the ?rst line of management in the company, and must become the quarterback by learning more than just the technical trade skills required to install the work. Like a quarterback, he must have a carefully crafted and practiced game plan (or else it’s sandlot football), he must be able to execute the plan, he must be able to adjust the plan when teammates stumble or show less talent, he must provide accurate feedback to the coaches on the bench, and he must AT ALL TIMES keep his eyes on the goal of winning the game.

Cost of an Hour of Labor – Colorado Springs @ UA Local #58
Sep 16 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Event Speaker: Mark Rogers picture of Mark_Rogers

Understanding the full cost of labor is taught by Mark Rogers, an MCAA Past President, in an effort to help members in leadership positions understand costs and a union contractors business model.

This session gives a detailed explanation of the costs associated with putting a UA worker on the job for an hour.  It explains the additional costs that are mandated by federal and local entities that drive the rate for contractors employing UA Craftsmen and women.

As Mark will show you, there is way more to a cost of an hour than what the hourly wage is on the check.
