Success! IBEW Local 1 shuts down non-union contractor at Walgreens

Oakville – IBEW Local 1 successfully shut down a non-union contractor installing new LED signage lighting at the Walgreens store on Telegraph Road at Crestline Drive. After IBEW Local 1 Business Representative David Roth (at right) showed up with his umbrella and vest to picket Walgreen’s use of Lighting Services Inc. of St. Louis, a non-union contractor not paying area standard wages, Lighting Service’s lone employee on the job packed up his truck and left. Roth said he would be keeping an eye on the store to make sure Lighting Services does not return. If you see Lighting Services Inc. at any Walgreens, please contact IBEW Local 1 at 314-647-5900. ­– Labor Tribune photo
