Dear Local 110 Members,
Labor in the Pulpits/on the Bimah/in the Minbar celebrates the link between faith, work and justice, and we want you to celebrate that link with us. http://mojwj.org/2014-labor-in-the-pulpits/ Since 1996, thousands of congregations have focused Labor Day weekend services on the injustices facing workers and the religious community’s efforts to support those workers’ struggles for living wages and family-sustaining benefits.
Each year, the Labor in the Pulpits program has a theme. We have focused on health care, the minimum wage, and many other issues. In 2014, the theme is A Respectful and Just Workplace, focusing on the dignity of labor and the right of workers to organize and collectively bargain. This right is under attack like never before, and this year’s theme focuses on the ways in which community and faith support can strengthen the voice of workers in the workplace and in our democracy.
We want your congregation to celebrate the voice of workers by participating in the Labor in the Pulpits program. To participate, visit the Missouri Jobs with Justice website to access worship resources, ideas for action and engagement, and our 2014 bulletin insert or call JwJ at 314-644-0466. http://mojwj.org/2014-labor-in-the-pulpits/ We'll contact you and help get your congregation.
On behalf of the Workers Rights Boards and the Faith Labor Alliance of Missouri Jobs with Justice, thank you for your efforts to strengthen working families and promote economic justice for all.
The Rev. Dr. Martin Rafanan

Congratulations to Steve Stenger on defeating Charlie Dooley in the Democratic Primary Election for St. Louis County Executive. Labor really flexed its muscles in this election, and the results show it!
Now we have to bring home another big win in November.
Unfortunately Amendment 7 did not pass, but at least Prop. S did pass in Jefferson County, which will fund road improvements in Jefferson County.
Congratulations to Sam Page on becoming the next St. Louis County Councilman from the 2nd District. We look forward to working with him for many years to come.
Sam Rauls also won his Primary for Jefferson County Executive, and Mike Edwards won his for Jefferson County Council, 3rd District.
Thanks to all of the Laborers who worked so hard to get labor-friendly candidates a win in their Primary.
3 months until the General Election. Onward!

Thanks again to the dedicated members of LiUNA! Local 110 for coming in to phone bank after work yesterday. We got through over 1200 numbers in just a little over an hour. Great work!
In an effort to press Congress to pass a jobs-creating, long-term Highway Bill, LIUNA has launched a major media campaign including radio ads, billboards, online materials and actions and the “Getting Schooled in Infrastructure” school bus, which began touring the U.S. on June 16. The bus has been crushed and carries a large piece of concrete from a falling bridge. It will be towed to news media briefings in more than 20 locations, starting with Delaware, Pennsylvania and Ohio and continuing to other cities during the summer. The campaign is linked to www.FixOurBridges.org and www.RepairOurRoads.org, where concerned Americans can send a message to Congress. The current Highway Bill authorization expires Oct. 1, meaning the Highway Trust Fund will no longer pass funds to states for road and bridge projects, unless Congress takes action. Even before the expiration, the fund is expected to run dry. Congress has viable options to save the trust fund. Hundreds of thousands of jobs – and the safety of motorists – are at stake. Watch video and see other coverage.
Learn more now at www.FixOurBridges.org and send your message to your member of Congress.
