The Officers of the ADC of Eastern Missouri are pleased to announce an unprecedented 8-year extension to the current Collective Bargaining Agreement between Bricklayers' Local 1 of Missouri and the Mason Contractors Association of St. Louis. The extension makes the current CBA a 10-year deal, expiring in 2029.

A new AutoZone in Barnhart, Missouri, is being bannered to alert the public that an Out-Of-State non-Signatory Contractor that pays its workers substandard wages and benefits was hired to build this new store location.

Below are maps of Prevailing Wage rates specified by the Missouri Department of Labor labeled by county.

Due to the recent bill passed in the Missouri State Legislature to dismantle Prevailing Wage protections that were originally established in  the 1930s, each county now has its own Prevailing Wage rate.   These rates are the total package.
