Kenny Mullins

Business Manager, IBEW Local 613

UnionUp does all our communication and built our website as well. The Organize 24/7 recruiting program and newsletter was a game changer for us. I've gotten so much great feedback from our members. They see the ads and forward them too.

Terry Newsome, Jr.

Business Manager, UA Local 72

Rut came to our conference in Savannah and showed us the 'Organize 24/7' program. It was a no-brainer for us and started paying dividends immediately after we launched.

Steve Langley

Business Manager, SMART Local 85

Union Up's Organize 24.7 program been the best thing we've ever done for recruiting. The quality of our applicants is so much better. We're going on 3 years with it.

Donald Kelly

Training Director, Augusta JATC

UnionUp does what they say they are going to do when they say they are going to do it. They have good ideas and their videos are incredible. We're able to deliver apprenticeship leads to organizers in all our 14 affiliates. Rut Walker and his crew are in it for the right reasons and I really enjoy working with them.

Randy Beall

Business Manager, Financial Secretary, Atl/North GA Building Trades

We've been with Union Up for three years now. It's one of the smartest moves I've ever made. They help us with our communication with potential members, to current members, to contractors. It's been a great partnership, a great experience for us, and I'm very proud to continue to do so.

Bill Blackman

Business Manager, IBEW Local 136

The thing that sticks out the most to me is that Union Up cares. They understand who we are and what we're about, which makes their ability to capture our message that much greater.

Jarrett Wade

Organizer/Marketing Rep, UA Local Union 72, Georgia/Carolina’s Pipe Trades

Union Up is really good at what they do because they get what WE do. They only work with organized labor, and work with several locals around here who use their company for all sorts of projects.

Who is Union Up?

For us to thrive as a nation, there simply must be a path to the middle class through the dignity and nobility of the trades. College isn't for everyone.

Rutland Walker

Founder of Union Up

It absolutely matters how you present yourself. Young people are the future of organized labor. How your website looks, graphics, your social media, search engine results when they're looking for you... They must see themselves in what you do. We help our locals put their best foot forward."
