Missouri Works Initiative topic of February Labor Law Series

The Missouri Works Initiative and its strategic workforce development programs will be the topic of the Feb. 9 installment of the Labor Law Series. The free event will be held from 11 a.m. to noon via Zoom.

Launched in 2021 by the Missouri AFL-CIO, the Missouri Works Initiative’s mission is to address the state’s evolving workforce needs. Key programs that will be discussed include:

  • Worker Wellness program.
  • Dislocated Worker program.
  • Building Union Diversity (BUD) program.
  • Missouri Apprentice Ready program.

Attendees will also learn more about the organization’s efforts to create healthy and recovery-friendly workplaces, connect laid-off workers with job-search and upskilling resources and collaborate with community partners to offer innovative points of entry to traditional apprenticeship opportunities.

Panelists include Greta Bax, Missouri AFL-CIO and Missouri Works Initiative executive director; Aurora Bihler, St. Louis BUD program coordinator; Rudy Chavez, Missouri Apprentice Ready program coordinator; and Jim Kolve, Dislocated Worker program coordinator.

The Labor Law Series is sponsored by the University of Missouri Extension’s Labor Education Program. Each month St. Louis and Kansas City alternates hosting a Labor law event. All registration costs have been waived because of the pandemic.
