Vice President, Midwest Regional Manager
I am very proud of the way our Laborers’ Local 29F members at the Army Corps of Engineers facility in Kansas City, Missouri stuck together through this settlement process. The leadership of Business Manager Carol Hodges and the combined determination of the Local Union Executive Board led to a remarkable success for our valued members. Across the Midwest Region, Local Union officers and staff are working hard to represent our members, whether it’s negotiating at the bargaining table or ensuring grievances are heard and handled fairly. This is a great example of diligent work by those officers and staff paying off for the members who elect them. It can be a long road to a resolution, and I appreciate the patience the members and staff showed through this process.
