WATCH: Local 110 Business Manager Don Willey speaking on behalf of all union and non-union workers on St. Louis County projects.

St. Louis County Council meets to try to repeal “Responsible Bidder” language in St. Louis County, which would be terrible for workers safety.

Not having strong “Responsible Bidder” language in St. Louis City is the reason unskilled contractors got workers killed in an elevator shaft a few weeks ago.

We cannot allow the council to put workers’ safety at risk to save some money.

Place matters. Where people live in St. Louis has been shaped by an extensive history of segregation that was driven by policies at multiple levels of government and practices across multiple sectors of society. The effect of segregation has been to systematically exclude African American families from areas of opportunity that support positive economic, educational, and health outcomes.

Our hearts go out to the coworkers and families of the two service workers that lost their lives on the job yesterday in downtown St. Louis. They were working for a non-union contractor. Job safety is one of the most important reasons to VOTE NO ON PROP A.

As Workers Memorial Day approaches in the U.S. and the National Day of Mourning nears in Canada,
we must redouble our efforts to enhance safety on the job and demand more respect for our work and
our lives. It is the right of every worker to have a safe jobsite or workplace, but that right is increasingly
neglected and under attack—with deadly consequences.

Work-related fatalities in all industries are rising in the U.S. and Canada, with 6,095 deaths in 2016, themost recent statistics available. That is up from 5,688 the year before. Since 2008, 151 LIUNA membershave been killed on the job and the construction industry accounts for one in five worker deaths. For toomany men and women, going to work means risking their life to put food ...

What makes America different is that it’s about more than just low-wage work; our country

is about the opportunity to get ahead and prosper. The corporate-backed groups and low
road contractors pushing so-called right-to-work are out to cut workers’ pay and benefits and
weaken unions.


So-called right-to-work is an effort to undermine unions and turn good blue
collar jobs into low wage, no benefit jobs.

• So-called right-to-work forces unions to represent workers that don’t pay their dues;threatening the union’s financial stability and long term survival.• Without a union, low road contractors have free rein to cut pay and benefits.• Our country is about more than just low wage jobs. Our country is about t...
