Congratulations to the first graduating class of Plug In IE and Teamsters Local 1932’s High Road Training Partnership, who received employment certification for union jobs in warehousing. A ceremony was held on Wednesday, February 8, to recognize the eight graduates.
Graduates of the warehouse and distribution training course were trained by Teamsters Local 630 member Fredy Campos, who helped participants learn about warehouse floor operations and worker safety. Guest instructors guided students through conversations on electrification in the supply chain industries, the ins and outs of union employment, and résumé writing.
The course took place at the new Teamsters Local 1932 Training Center in downtown San Bernardino. Each participant received a stipend to cover the cost of transportation and training time.
Along with the Inland Empire Labor Council, AFL-CIO; and Warehouse Worker Resource Center, Teamsters 1932 initiated Plug In IE to ensure that the growth of logistics in the Inland Empire benefits all residents. The partnership connects training participants with high-demand, family-supporting jobs. Teamsters 1932 also runs a training course for office personnel.
