The 2020 Bricklayer500 Regional Competition was held at Midwest Brick & Block on Saturday, October 10, 2020.

The last two weeks kicked off our Fall Semester at the ADC Apprenticeship Training Center with Bricklayers Local 1 Apprentice Coordinator Dale Jennewein at the helm. 

Our Bricklayers’ Local 1 Apprentices recently gave their time on a community outreach project at the St.

Officers and Members of Bricklayers' Local 1 have an active job action against the new Cedarhurst Assisted Living being built on Old Lemay Ferry Road at Church Road in Arnold, MO, for hiring a non-Signatory Contractor, Canyon Stone, from Kansas City.  This non-Signatory Contractor pays workers substandard wages and benefits on a project that has received tax incentives from the city of Arnold.

Thanks to Retired Local 18 Tilesetters Steve Hanlon and Richard Hanlon for volunteering their time to assist us with this job action!
