During National Apprenticeship Week, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas accepted the invitation to join IUPAT DC 3 apprentices, members and leaders at their training center. Mayor Quinton Lucas noted, “It is always an honor to spend time with the women and men of the labor movement. I enjoyed talking to union apprentices about our recent work at City Hall on wage theft, prevailing wage, and standing up for our workers. I am proud Kansas City is a union town!” Councilman Kevin O’Neill was also on hand to congratulate the apprentices on choosing such a great career and added how proud he was to be the publisher of the Labor Beacon.
