About Keith Peraino: Keith Peraino earned a MS in Healthcare Administration from Lehigh University, and holds a Certificate in Human Resources Management from Villanova. He has wide-spread campaign experience and was a senior human resources official for the largest health care system in New Jersey. He spent years directing extensive organizing campaigns by working in conjunction with many of the major unions that exist. His experience with the union, organizing, negotiating, and handling contract administration and arbitrations provides rare insight into the methodology currently used by the nation’s largest unions.

Throughout his tenure, however, it became more apparent to him that as workers organized, there was little to no gain for them and nothing was being accomplished through collective bargaining. Since then he has been involved with campaigns against unions, such as the Teamsters, UFCW, and IBEW, and many others. Peraino provides management training in all industries and speaks at many SHRM meetings throughout the country.
