PRIDE of St. Louis Inc., the 43-year-old labor-management cooperative, has changed its name to Saint Louis Construction Cooperative (SLCC) with the motto “Building Better Together,” Executive Director Jim LaMantia announced at the group’s recent awards luncheon.

“The new name better conveys what we do in labor management, cooperate for the betterment of our industry,” LaMantia said.

The Saint Construction Cooperative was founded in 1972 and is the oldest voluntary local construction labor-management organization in the nation.

For more than 40 years, it has pioneered a collaborative approach to sustaining harmony and building cooperation among St. Louis area AFL-CIO construction craft workers, contractors, construction buyers, architects, engineers and suppliers.
