IBEW Local 1 shuts down Holland Construction’s apartment project on So. Grand in St. Louis

IBEW LOCAL 1 is picketing the South Grand Multi-Family apartment development at 2232 S. Grand Blvd.  Holland Construction is the general contractor on the project and hired Power Up electric, a Local 57 contractor, for the electrical work. Local 57 is a non-AFL-CIO electricians’ union within the St. Louis-Kansas City Carpenters District Council. Local 1 put the picket and inflatable rat up on Sept. 28. Thanks to the support of the Operating Engineers, Carpenters and other trades that walked off the jobsite, Local 1 was able to shut the project down. This is the third time Local 1 has shut down a Holland job in the past year. Holland has reached out to Local 1 to talk. Taking the message to the public are Local 1 electrician Rick Dinnella (left) and Business Representative Dave Roth. – IBEW Local 1 photo
