Union sisters lobby on behalf of all working women at Missouri State Capitol


Jefferson City – Scores of union sisters and a few brothers turned out for the Fourth Annual Missouri Working Women’s Lobby Day, March 6, at the State Capitol in honor of International Women’s Day. The morning began at Bone’s Banquet Center in Jefferson City where State Senator Gina Walsh (D-Bellefontaine Neighbors), who is also president of the Missouri State Building & Construction Trades Council, and House Democratic Leader Crystal Quade (D-Springfield) fired up the crowd and discussed the issues facing Missouri’s working women. Afterward, union members went to the State Capitol and walked the halls, taking their message to state senators and representatives. – Photo courtesy of Kim Cook Bell, president, St. Louis Chapter of the Coalition of Labor Union Women
