Don Willey

Business Manager / Executive Board Member

I am a St. Louis native, attended Bishop Du Bourgh High School and graduated from the University of Iowa in 1980. I joined Local 110 in 1984 and worked with various different contractors over twenty years such as Fred Weber, Mc Carthy Brothers, J.S. Alberici, Tarlton, K and S, and others. In 1999 I was elected as an auditor, and in 2004 Local Vice President and delegate to the district council. In 2007 I was elected to Secretary Treasurer of Local 110 and in 2010 I was elected Business Manager. Today I sit on the Board of Local 110, the Pension Board, The Welfare Board, The Laborers Training Center Board, and The St. Louis Labor Council Board. The Mission is “To Help People Live Better” in their jobs, their homes, their families and their communities. That’s why we join a Union.

Rick Casson

I was born in East St. Louis IL and grew up in Belleville Illinois. I am the former Mayor of Albers, IL., former volunteer fireman and former member of Fairview Heights and New Baden IL. Jaycees. My family has a long line of Union Members.

I started working at St. Louis ship as a pipe welder in 1978. In 1983 I went to work for Alberici. I worked for Alberici for 20 plus years. In 1992 I was elected to the executive board of Laborers’ Local 110 and in 2004 was elected again to the Executive Board of Local 110. In 2005 I became a Business Agent and in 2011 I have taken the Office of Secretary Treasurer.

I am grateful to represent the members of the best Laborers Local in North America, Local 110. I will work and represent all members of Local 110 to the best of my ability and I thank my union brothers and sisters for their support.

Ronny Griffin

Vice President / Executive Board Member

I started as a cleanup laborer but quickly learned other skills, which include; Skid-Steer, Man-Lift, Hydraulic-Rock Drill, Rock Blasting, Hydraulic-Boulder Breaker, Crusher Feeder and Plant Maintenance. I also monitored the drilling and blasting operations at Weber's North Quarry as Blaster in Charge for seventeen years. I was a Charter Member of Fred Weber's Safety Committee, MSHA Miner's Representative and Shop-Steward. In 2003 I was elected to the Laborers' Local 110 Executive Board, and in 2006 was elected Vice President. After thirty two years with Weber in 2011 I became a full-time Business Representative for the local.

Steve MacDonald

Recording Secretary / Executive Board Member

Born in St. Louis, I graduated Webster Groves High School in 1980 and started college at MO State. In 1985 while still at MO State I started working a summer job doing asbestos abatement, that summer job turned into much more. I moved back to St Louis in 1986 and joined the Laborers in 1988. I spent the majority of my career doing asbestos, demo and other environmental remediation. I had the pleasure of running some fairly large scale projects over the years and working with some of the best people in the business. I was an Auditor for 110 for a couple years before becoming a Business Agent in 2009. I feel truly blessed to represent the members of 110.

Rob Reed

Business Agent / Executive Board Member

I am 38 years on and I’m a 17 year member of Laborers’ Local 110. My wife of 17 years and I have a daughter (16) and a son (12). I have lived in the High ridge area all of my life. My dad has been a member of LIUNA for almost 60 years and my brother has put in over 30 years as well. Several Family members, such as uncles, cousins, and my grandfather, were all members also. In my first 13 years as a Laborer, I worked mainly for General Contractors in a wide variety of work. In the last 4 years I have been in the Pipeline Industry working for Accurate Underground, a directional drilling company. We travel all over, but the majority of our work is in the Midwest. I am currently serving on the Executive Board and look forward to the possibility of being a Business Agent one day to fight for what is right for the members of Local 110. I always have a will continue to stand up for the working class.

Clint McBride

Government Affairs Director

I was born and raised in Southern Illinois before moving to St. Louis where I majored in Political Science at Webster University. Upon graduation I lived in a number of places around the country working on campaigns for pro-labor candidates. I moved back to St. Louis in 2012 and took on the role of Government Affairs Director for LiUNA Local 110. I feel humbled to represent such a devoted, selfless membership and I am lucky to call you my brothers and sisters.

I was born in Mississippi and grew up in East St. Louis where I graduated Lincoln Sr. High School. I went to a trade school and became a certified welder doing tack welding on an assembly line. From there I moved on to a heavy metal scrap yard torching everything from tanks to railroad cars. At the age of 23 I started in the abatement field and moved to a supervisory position. I joined Local 110 in 2008 and I am proud to be part of the 110 family.

Sarah Schwartz

Hello! My name is Sarah Schwartz. I grew up and still live in Webster Groves, Missouri. I am engaged to be married in the fall and have two beautiful step children. I received my B.S. in education along with my teaching degree in middle school math from the University of Missouri St. Louis in 2008. After many years of substitute teaching and competing for jobs in an over-saturated market, I looked elsewhere for opportunity. I started as a cashier at Ace Hardware on Watson and quickly moved through the ranks to management. After three years in management at the store I interviewed with Laborers' Local 110 for the open office assistant position. I started with the local in 2015, and should I be lucky enough, plan to finish my career here.

Hope Hatfield

My name is Hope Hatfield, born and raised in Texas now living in the Saint Louis area. I began working at a Reebok Outlet store quickly moving up to the Assistant Manager position where I stayed for 7 years. I then began a career change to the building industry as an Inside Sales Manager for the window department for Stock Building Supply and DeFord Lumber and Millwork. The housing market crashed during that time and eventually left the building supply industry to join the US Navy. I served 7 years in the US Navy as an Electronics Technician working on airfield and shipboard radars in Virginia onboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, at Naval Air Station Jacksonville Florida and in the Middle East in the country of Bahrain. During that time obtained my Associates degree of Applied Science in Electronics.

I joined the amazing family here at Local 110 in July 2017 as an Administrative Assistant. I know that I have to big shoes to fill in this position, but I am up for the challenge and look forward to many years to come with LiUNA!
