OFFICERS & STAFF
Business Manager / 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. I was appointed Business Manager in 2021. I am the first elected Black Business Manager in a building trade local in the St. Louis area.
Secretary-Treasurer / 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. I became Secretary-Treasurer in 2019.
President / Executive Board Member
I began my career as a Laborer in 1999. Between my Father, Brother and myself, we have over 125 years as members of LiUNA. In my first 12 years as a Laborer, I worked mainly for General and Demolition Contractors in a wide variety of work. During my last 6 years in the field, I worked in the Pipeline Industry for Accurate Underground, a directional drilling company. We traveled all over, but the majority of our work was in the Midwest. I have been an officer of Local 110 for about 10 years now and a Business Agent for 4 years. As President I will continue to fight for what is right for the members of LiUNA Local 110.

Business Agent / Executive Board Member
I began working as a laborer along side my father in 2001 doing asphalt work during the summer while going to college. In the summer of 2003 I finished college and decided to pursue a career as a Union Laborer. I have worked in a variety of jobs and companies since then including: everything from demo to tenant finish, pier/foundation work to general cleanup, and companies with under 10 field employees to the big boys here in STL (McCarthy, Alberici, etc.). Even during the hardest days as a laborer I knew I could count on the local and the brotherhood that comes along with it – they where always there to support me and help me get through hard times. I look forward to being here for the membership in the same way. To be available to help or assist our membership in any way. I want to help grow and maintain our local to the standard that has been set before me. I became a full time business agent in 2022.
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.
Hello! My name is Sarah Schwartz. I grew up and still live in Webster Groves, Missouri. 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 years of substitute teaching and competing for jobs in an over-saturated market, I looked elsewhere. I started as a cashier at Ace Hardware and quickly moved through the ranks to management. After three years in management at the store I interviewed with Laborers' Local 110 for the office assistant position. I started with the local in 2015, assumed the role of Office Manager in 2017 and if I am lucky enough, plan to spend the rest of my career serving our board and members.
I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. I played soccer at Rockwood Summit and received a scholarship to attend Lindenwood University. I managed a restaurant in Webster Groves for 15 years before I applied for the administrative assistant position with Local 110. I am very honored to serve the members of this Local.
