IBEW Local 1 urges boycott to clip wings of non-union work at Buffalo Wild Wings

IBEWBallwin, MO – IBEW Local 1 bannered and hand-billed at the Buffalo Wild Wings at 15425 Manchester Rd. last week, after earlier picketing the location, to draw attention to the fact that electrical work at the restaurant chain is being performed by Reinhold Electric, a contractor with Local 57 – a non-AFL-CIO electricians union within the Carpenters’ District Council – who pays below area standard wages and benefits established by IBEW Local 1.

Taking the message to the public were (from left) Local 1 electrician Julie Wehmeyer, Business Representative Ken Landwehr and electrician Ben Rickert.
