New Building Trades Council Leader Ralph Oropeza and SMART Local 2’s Greg Chastain

The Kansas City Building Trades – the union of construction unions – has a new leader: Ralph Oropeza. We’ll ask Ralph about himself and whether he’s expecting a building boom in KC. Then do you know who put the roof on the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts? It was SMART, among others. That’s the Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers in Local 2. In our ongoing union leader series we’ll talk to SMART’s Greg Chastain. Also we’ll have Mark Gruenberg with the latest national labor news.
