Hoisting Engineers 513 exposing wage destroying contractors


HIGHWAY ROBBERY? That the builder of condos beginning at $850,000 can’t afford to pay the prevailing wages of Operating Engineers Local 513 and instead use non-union companies to clear land is the informational goal of picketing (left photo) by Local 513 members David Habsieger (at left) and Jeremy Moore on Topton Way in Clayton. Same issue applies to new construction at 5530 Pershing (right photo) where a non-union contractor is also paying sub-standard wages. Informing the public is Operating Engineers Local 513 member Jeremy Moore. – Labor Tribune photos



  1. We just had the same issue here in Kansas City……we had someone from every trade stand out informing the non union workers just how much they were getting short changed. Our strike lasted 2 days and the company signed . Local 101 stands behind u brothers and sisters
