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...

Union members our elected officials are threatening your livelihoods with a new initiative called "Prop. A."

  • Proposition A is wrong for Missouri. It is an unnecessary, unfair government overreach into the workplace that distracts from the real issues like creating jobs and improving schools.
  • Proposition A is being promoted by a well-coordinated network of out-of-state billionaires, super PACs, and corporate special interest groups that are down-sizing, shipping jobs overseas, and hiding profits offshore to avoid paying the same taxes families and small businesses must pay.
  • Proposition A would give even more power to big corporations at a time when CEO pay has grown 364 times higher than what the average worker makes.
  • Real freedom in the workplace is about being able to balance life and work, attend a parent-teacher conference, take a loved one to the doctor, and have time for what matters in life without feeling like you’re falling behind at work.
  • This is not what we need to work toward, not laws like these. That’s why Missourians in every part of our state are collecting signatures to put a repeal of this law on the ballot so Missouri voters—not politicians—can decide whether Proposition A should become law.

I am writing to let you know that state lawmakers are working on a bill that would cut your pay by 20%–50%.

The proposed repeal of prevailing wage on public construction would slash wages and benefits on projects that you work on. We have to fight back to protect LIUNA livelihoods. I need you to come to the next union meeting to learn more about this.

We are working with allied groups and other unions to stop this attack but YOU need to be in this fight. This is about your paycheck and your benefits. In the coming weeks, we will be asking you to participate in events and other efforts to pressure lawmakers to re-think this terrible legislation. Please stay tuned and call the Hall with any questions.
