TEAMSTER.ORG | Since January 1, 2016, the Teamsters National Pipeline Training Fund has trained 261 Teamster members. All of these were current members who were upgrading their skills for higher earnings and better job opportunities. “In addition to the potential for higher earnings and improved job opportunities, the pipeline skills training also helps with job retention,” said Bubba Davis, Director of the Teamsters Building Material and Construction Trade Division.
