Warren County Labor Club seeks new members

The Warren County Labor Club is seeking new members to bolster its presence in the community.

Rod Herrmann, a retired Gas Workers 11-6 business representative, recently moved to Warrenton and took over as the club president. He was a member of the Tri-County Labor Club since it began.

“Our club was formed as a satellite club to the Tri-County Labor Club,” Herrmann said. “We have about 25 members now, and we’d like to see the club grow. There’s a lot of residential and commercial growth moving westward, and we’d like to be ahead of the growth instead of behind it.”

Labor clubs are non-partisan political action committees dedicated to promoting workers’ rights and electing Labor-friendly candidates. They interview and evaluate political candidates and propositions and make recommendations to the St. Louis Labor Council for COPE endorsements.

The organizations are also known for providing assistance to charitable organizations and their members frequently lend a hand by volunteering their quality skills on projects in the community.

In addition to Herrmann serving as acting president of the Warren County Labor Club, other officers include: Vice President Dan Mueller, Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 562; Treasurer Charlie Redecker,  Carpenters Local 32; and Recording Secretary Rodger Wells, Machinists District 9.

The Warren County Labor Club meets the first Thursday of the month at Ruiz-Castillo Mexican Restaurant, 223 W. Service Road N, in Wright City. Executive board begins at 6 p.m. and the general meeting, which is open to the public, begins at 6:30 p.m.

For more information on the club, call Herrmann at 314-581-8448 or email him at rherrmannusw@gmail.com.
