I started construction in 1975 at the bottom of the ladder and worked my way up that ladder until I became a public works inspector in 1993.  My time spent working in the field was a good experience. I joined our union local 189 in 2004 and became a shop steward and chapter chair soon after. It’s been a good place to be seeing that we can do together what we can’t do alone.
