Laborers Local 110 is continuing its 12-year tradition of supporting Missouri Jobs with Justice (JwJ) with a $50,000 donation that has helped the agency grow over the years.

Local 110 Recording Secretary Mark Bielicke presented the gift to the organization at its annual End-of-Year Celebration Dec. 6 at the Painters District Council 58 union hall in St. Louis. This year’s donation brings the union’s total contributions to the organization to $600,000.

“They stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Labor in solidarity on the big issues, and their mission aligns with ours – to build a Missouri where opportunity exists for all,” said Bielicke, who has been active with the organization for 11 years and currently serves as Labor co-chair for its St. Louis leadership team. “We are happy to help.”

Missouri JwJ Executive Director Caitlyn Adams said the continued and consistent investment from Laborers 110 has allowed it to grow its team and its geographic reach, which means more wins for working people.

“It has helped leverage additional labor resources, and we don’t have to say ‘no’ when it comes to standing with workers,” she said. “We can run policy campaigns and still deliver community support when workers go on strike. We are grateful and look forward to continued collaboration and power building.”

Missouri Jobs with Justice is a statewide grassroots coalition of individuals and faith, Labor, student and community groups building transformative power for social, racial and economic justice. For more information, visit
