The Alaska Teamster Employer Training Trust was established in 1972 as a Taft-Hartley Trust for the purpose of training Teamsters within the State of Alaska. After construction of the Trans-Alaska oil pipeline, emphasis began to turn to a maintenance-based workforce, and new requirements resulted in the formation of the Service Training Trust in 1980. This provided a training vehicle for other industries the Teamsters represented in Alaska. In 1987, the two training trusts merged into the current organization. Under this new trust organization many new programs were developed to fit the needs of an extremely diverse workforce.
