Our Work with Labor Unions
At Alvarez Porter Group, we understand the dynamics of change in unions. Joe and Allison have their roots in labor in the open shop South and have built a team deeply committed to strengthening and growing unions. Our group brings outside tools and sensibilities with an insider’s comfort level with the culture and challenges.
Recently, we have been helping local unions in places like Olympia, Washington, Baltimore, Maryland and Sacramento, California develop strategies and improve skills. We continue to do ground-breaking leadership development programs at the national level, like the AFL-CIO’s National Labor Leadership Initiative, which this year brought Joe to South Africa.
2018 poses new challenges for unions everywhere, and will require new levels of innovation and risk taking. We are here to support leaders and members in meeting this with strategic choice and resilience.
