Check out this awesome coal mining shovel created in 1976 by United Steel Workers Local 1114, an affiliate union of Milwaukee Area Labor Council!

#WRTP #BIGSTEP #WRTPBIGSTEP #Wisconsin #Trade #Construction #Manufacturing #Work #Job #Jobs #JobSearch #Hiring #HardWork #WorkHard #Career #Learn #Learning #Community #Union #Follow4Follow #FollowForFollow #Follow #Like #Like4LikeThe members of our affiliate unions make some pretty incredible stuff and we want you to know about it!

Our Union Made Moment for June is the Model 2100 Coal Mining Shovel you've probably seen while heading to a Brewer game on National Ave made by members of USW 1114.

The shovel was built for open pit mining in 1976 when the company was known as P&H Harnischfeger until the machine was decommissioned in 1996. You can find the clock number of union members that built it stamped inside the boom. The company was then known as Joy Global and is now know as Komatsu (P&H division).

WRTP | BIG STEP is a 501(c)3 nonprofit workforce intermediary dedicated to connecting people to family-sustaining jobs.

Our mission is to enhance the ability of public and private sector organizations to recruit, develop, and retain a more diverse, qualified workforce in construction, manufacturing and emerging sectors of the regional economy.

WRTP was initially created to renew our traditional industrial base in the Milwaukee area during the 1990s. The recovery of manufacturing, retirement of an aging workforce, and diversification of the regional economy created a growing skills shortage by the end of the decade. In response to this threat to economic growth and prosperity, we created our successful model of pre-employment training for job seekers to qualify for family-sustaining jobs in the industrial sector.

Supported by public, private, and philanthropic investments, WRTP | BIG STEP’s mission is to assist economically disadvantaged minorities, women, and youth (primarily from the central-city) develop the skills needed to participate meaningfully in the workforce and share in the area economy while ensuring that member companies have the skilled workers needed to prosper and grow in a competitive global economy.
