Survival of the Fittest: How the Future of Union Construction Depends on Every Journeyman, Every Apprentice and You


This book has been written for the largest and most important group in our market recovery team: the rank and file union construction workers. This book is destined to become the guide for every apprentice and journeyman in the U.S. and Canada on the necessary skills, attitudes and behaviors that it takes to compete and succeed in our industry. In the hands of every single union member, this book provides a clear understanding of the real performance standards of our industry in an easy to understand, entertaining and compelling way. It is time the rank and file took personal responsibility for bringing their very best effort to the job site every day. We need their help in taking back the market and this book shows them why and how.

Customer Feedback

A couple of years ago we incorporated the ‘Survival of the Fittest’ into our foreman certification course for our fifth year apprentices and last year we incorporated the “Million Dollar Blue Collar” into our managing personal finances course for our first year apprentices.

I teach the apprentices and use Survival of the Fittest and it’s always their favorite class. It’s empowering, motivating and it’s a great way for me as a Union leader to bring legitimacy to the concepts.
