2018 Day on the Hill

On Tuesday, April 10, please join fellow LIUNA members & retirees & our brothers & sisters in the Minnesota Building & Construction Trades at our 2018 LIUNA Minnesota Day on the Hill!

Learn more about our legislative priorities, visit with your elected officials & rally on the State Capitol steps! Together, we can make our voices heard & make a difference on issues that matter to us - such as creating family-supporting jobs, protecting the prevailing wage, investing in infrastructure, & stopping so-called "Right to Work".

Breakfast & lunch will be provided. Free parking in the SW corner of the Sears parking lot, at the corner of Marion Street & Saint Anthony Avenue (Look for LIUNA staff). Or pay to park at meters.

Please RSVP, including your t-shirt size, by completing our Google doc at https://goo.gl/forms/AWmxootoOENmuk2S2

Priorities

Because of members like you who give your time, energy and resources, attend Local Union meetings, take action, share your stories and volunteer, LIUNA Minnesota & North Dakota wins on our priorities. Together, we build our priorities through one-on-one jobsite and workplace conversations to internet feedback and member surveys. Along with the Building & Construction Trades Councils, other labor and community partners, we bring the fight for our freedom and priorities to City Halls, State & U.S. Capitols.
