Current Issues
     Labor Relations
     The Building Division of the AGC of Missouri focuses heavily on providing labor relations services for eastern Missouri and the St. Louis region.  Labor contracts for this marketplace include carpenters, cement masons, ironworkers, laborers, and operating engineers.  AGCMO staff provides both negotiation services and on-going consultation regarding union labor issues for AGCMO members.

Recruitment, retention, and training of craftworkers is a primary activity of the AGCMO Building Division.  By supporting the facilities and operations of the Construction Training School in St. Louis, any number of industry training opportunities are available for AGCMO members including hands-on apprenticeship training, supervisory training, leadership training, and special events and seminars such as BIM and technology training.

     Efforts to increase the diversity of the construction industry in this area include both the support and development of MBE/WBE/DBE firms and workforce inclusion.  Through the support of various contractor development programs, opportunities are provided to help new and emerging businesses of all types gain business in the construction marketplace.  In conjunction with workforce activities, recruitment and retention of new craftworkers from every ethnic background and gender are a high priority for AGCMO.
