Wildwood, MO – Bricklayers Local 1 member Wasim Aziz takes the message to the public that Jeff Schindler, president of McBride & Son Homes, is using Mungle Brickwork, a non-union contractor that pays far below area standard wages and benefits established by Local 1, for brickwork on his new home in the Wardenburg Farms subdivision in Wildwood. The home is located at Wardenburg Farms Drive and Wildhorse Creek Road.
On its company website, McBride & Son Homes bills as itself as St. Louis’ largest home builder recognized as the largest “union builder” in the United States. John Hopkin, Local 1 president and business representative, said he spoke with Schindler about the issue prior to setting up the picket. “Jeff told me, ‘This has nothing to do with McBride, this is my own house,’” Hopkin said. – Bricklayers Local 1 photo
