"The St. Louis – Kansas City regional Council of Carpenters are part of this effort to help rebuild this great transportation network for our country's future, and the creation of jobs for our membership. Locks and dams need to be upgraded in the worst way, and we have the workforce to rebuild the infrastructure with good, hard-working American workers that are the best trained and most efficient in the world. No matter what party is in charge in Washington, WCI is on the front lines advocating for funding and authorizing legislation that is creating opportunities for good paying jobs for our membership. We are proud to stand with other WCI members in support of this effort."
