Get a free t-shirt when you take the 101 Constitution online course

The SSMRC will send you a free t-shirt after you complete the online course “101 Constitution: U.S. Government and Labor Law,” which is hosted in the United Brotherhood of Carpenters Department of Education and Training’s Learning Management System. The self-paced, five-part course includes sections on:

  • The U.S. Constitution
  • How Laws are Made
  • Parties and Elections
  • State and Local Government
  • Labor Law

This course provides valuable information on how the U.S. government and its labor laws operate. It’s important for SSMRC members to have this knowledge because they can play a role in electing candidates who care about issues affecting union workers, our families, and our communities.

Each month, the council will mail t-shirts to members who completed the course during the prior month. If you have already taken the course, we will send your shirt in December.
