Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 10, 2014
UnionTrack, Inc., a veteran-owned, union software company based in Rockville, Maryland, entered a new phase in its mission to strengthen and unify the labor movement, by launching its new website this week and announcing it is open for business. Bridging the gap between current union operations and state-of-the-art technology, UnionTrack has developed an unprecedented solution specifically for the labor movement. A powerful, database-driven application, UnionTrack is designed to streamline union operations at all levels—from local lodges to national labor organizations.
UnionTrack streamlines internal processes—including membership and dues management, education and training, benefits administration and mandated reporting. As a result, union officers and staff can focus on the core union missions of organizing, training and advocating for America’s working families. Through a series of flexible, task-based modules, UnionTrack can be customized to meet the specific needs of any organization, dramatically improving member services.
President Obama’s recent signing of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) brought national attention—and significant Federal resources—to the efforts to narrow the skills gap and ensure the American workforce is better prepared for the jobs of today and tomorrow. While for decades America’s labor movement has provided the gold standard in employee training, UnionTrack will provide the support to better align workforce training and development programs with employer needs. By unifying all facets of union operations, UnionTrack will allow labor organizations to focus even more of their resources on developing the world’s best trained workforce and ensuring the continued growth of the American economy.
"Our proven technology enables union staff and officers to spend more of their time putting people to work and less time on administrative tasks,” said UnionTrack founder and President Ken Green. “We believe in the labor movement because we’re union members ourselves. We’ve seen the struggles and we’re here to help.”
UnionTrack sets itself apart from other providers in the market by working exclusively with unions and organizations that support organized labor. The company’s employees are all members of the International Union of Operating Engineers (Local 99 and Local 324) and have more than three decades’ experience working with unions and the labor movement. Through their work, the UnionTrack team has developed unparalleled insight into the organizational and operational challenges that all unions face.
Over the past several decades, Labor has increasingly come under attack by organized interest’s intent on splintering the labor movement, despite it being the greatest force in creating America’s middle class and furthering social justice and worker protections. UnionTrack exists to reunify the labor movement, securing all workers’ access to opportunity and prosperity.
“We are passionate about our work because we're not just selling a product,” Green said. “We're helping our union brothers and sisters achieve greater opportunity and prosperity; we consider every client a partner in accomplishing these goals.”
Established in 2013, UnionTrack was split into a separate company in 2014 focusing exclusively on the union movement. In less than one year, the company has grown by 400% - well ahead of its projected business plan. All staff belongs to the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 99 (Washington, DC) or Local 324 (Michigan). UnionTrack’s mission is to enable unions to allocate more of their resources toward organizing, training and advocating for working families.
