Local 579 Business Manager Scott Howell talked with News Station KQ2 about the problems with the ruling on Public Sector Unions.
Congratulations to three of our contractor partners, E.L. Crawford, J.D. Bishop Construction and Loch Sand and Gravel, for their outstanding work with Local 579 members on what may be a record-setting curb job at Northwest Missouri State University.
