L-83 apprentices get ‘in on the act,’ build staircase for school play

L-83 apprentices get ‘in on the act,’ build staircase for school play

APPRENTICES AT LOCAL 83 (Kansas City, Missouri) participated in the play “Eurydice” without ever setting foot on stage. Twenty apprentices, working in groups of five to eight, fabricated an elaborate staircase for the set of Olathe West High School’s fall play. Local 83’s BM-ST Scot Albertson said the 150-hour project was a real-life lesson in fabrication, because apprentices had to look at the drawing of the staircase, then build it.

Tester bill would hold Imerys accountable for lockout

U.S. Senator Jon Tester

(U.S. Senate)—U.S. Senator Jon Tester is introducing legislation to hold France-based Imerys accountable for locking workers out of its jobs at its talc plant in Three Forks.

Tester’s bill, the Prohibiting Incentives for Corporations that Kickout Employees Tax (PICKET) Act, will eliminate tax breaks, deductions, and credits for corporations that lock out their workers during a labor dispute. Tester rallied with workers locked outside of the Imerys plant in Three Forks last month and vowed to take legislative action in the U.S. Senate.

Brothers in every sense of the word

Father and sons on the job in the 1960s. Left to right: John Miskell, Don, Jerry and Jim.

Miskell legacy spans 76 years

AN HOUR SOUTHWEST of Chicago, knee-high corn dances in the warm breeze. The sun blazes, heating up the small town of Marseilles, Illinois, where the six Miskell brothers sit shoulder to shoulder around the dining room table at middle-brother Jim’s house. The men, along with several other relatives, are reminiscing about their family’s 76-year Boilermaker heritage, most of it spent working out of Local 60 (Peoria, Illinois).
