Building Skills Partnership (BSP) is an example of a Labor Management Partnership that helps support low-wage workers through training opportunities and engagement with union employers. The program currently trains 5,000 workers a year, offering occupational training, vocational ESL, computer literacy, financial literacy, health and wellness, civic engagement and citizenship, and other job readiness skills across 100 employers. The program develops its training to fill the gaps based on existing adult education and workforce training in the local area. To learn more about the BSP program, visit
