It is time once again for Laborers Day on the Hill. We will be joined by members of the Carpenters Union, Operating Engineers and Sheetmetal Workers Union who will also be doing their Days on the Hill. We will be talking to our legislators about our number one legislative priority: passing a long-term, comprehensive transportation funding bill as well as securing more bonding money for needed projects around the state. We will also be talking about our need to maintain strong prevailing wage laws.
This year, we are adding an additional opportunity for participants of Laborers Day on the Hill to meet with their legislators in a more informal setting. On Monday, March 9th from 5:00-8:00 pm at the Carpenters Union Hall (730 Olive Street, Saint Paul, MN), we will be joining members of the Carpenters, Operating Engineers and Sheetmetal Workers for a reception with our legislators and constitutional officers. We will have free appetizers and refreshments available. You must be attending Day on the Hill to participate in the reception. Please RSVP on the registration form.
Then, on Tuesday, March 10th at 10:00 am, we will meet at the Laborers District Council offices (75 E. Little Canada Road) to receive our lobbying packets, have a quick lunch and then board busses for the Capitol. Due to the construction at the state capitol, there will not be a rally this year. Busses will return to the Laborers District Council at 4:00 pm.
