Insulators Local 27 Business Manager Chuck Martin and New Grads of the Missouri Works Initiative

When it’s freezing out or super-hot, and you walk into a building and sigh with relief, you probably don’t thank the workers who insulated those buildings for your comfort. For over a hundred years, the Insulators Local 27 members have been insulating in our schools, hospitals, work places and public buildings.  This week on the Heartland Labor Forum we’ll talk to Business Manager Chuck Martin. Then, we’ll catch up with the Missouri Works Initiative’s Apprenticeship Ready Program, which trains future skilled craftworkers, and speak with three recent graduates as they embark into their chosen trades. Our feature is Washington Window with Mark Gruenberg.
