Laborers' Local 110 Officers:
Meet the Laborers' Local 110 Union Officers:
Don Willey - Business Manager
I am a St. Louis native, attended Bishop Du Bourgh High School and graduated from the University of Iowa in 1980. I joined Local 110 in 1984 and worked with various different contractors over twenty years such as Fred Weber, Mc Carthy Brothers, J.S. Alberici, Tarlton, K and S, and others. In 1999 I was elected as an auditor, and in 2004 Local Vice President and delegate to the district council. In 2007 I was elected to Secretary Treasurer of Local 110 and in 2010 I was elected Business Manager. Today I sit on the Board of Local 110, the Pension Board, The Welfare Board, The Laborers Training Center Board, and The St. Louis Labor Council Board. The Mission is “To Help People Live Better” in their jobs, their homes, their families and their communities. That’s why we join a Union.
Rick Casson - Secretary-Treasurer
I was born in East St. Louis IL and grew up in Belleville Illinois. I am the former Mayor of Albers, IL., former volunteer fireman and former member of Fairview Heights and New Baden IL. Jaycees. My family has a long line of Union Members.
I started working at St. Louis ship as a pipe welder in 1978. In 1983 I went to work for Alberici. I worked for Alberici for 20 plus years. In 1992 I was elected to the executive board of Laborers’ Local 110 and in 2004 was elected again to the Executive Board of Local 110. In 2005 I became a Business Agent and in 2011 I have taken the Office of Secretary Treasurer.
I am grateful to represent the members of the best Laborers Local in North America, Local 110. I will work and represent all members of Local 110 to the best of my ability and I thank my union brothers and sisters for their support.
Ronny Griffin - Vice President
I started as a cleanup laborer but quickly learned other skills, which include; Skid-Steer, Man-Lift, Hydraulic-Rock Drill, Rock Blasting, Hydraulic-Boulder Breaker, Crusher Feeder and Plant Maintenance. I also monitored the drilling and blasting operations at Weber's North Quarry as Blaster in Charge for seventeen years. I was a Charter Member of Fred Weber's Safety Committee, MSHA Miner's Representative and Shop-Steward. In 2003 I was elected to the Laborers' Local 110 Executive Board, and in 2006 was elected Vice President. After thirty two years with Weber in 2011 I became a full-time Business Representative for the local.
Steve MacDonald - Recording Secretary
Born in St. Louis, I graduated Webster Groves High School in 1980 and started college at MO State. In 1985 while still at MO State I started working a summer job doing asbestos abatement, that summer job turned into much more. I moved back to St Louis in 1986 and joined the Laborers in 1988. I spent the majority of my career doing asbestos, demo and other environmental remediation. I had the pleasure of running some fairly large scale projects over the years and working with some of the best people in the business. I was an Auditor for 110 for a couple years before becoming a Business Agent in 2009. I feel truly blessed to represent the members of 110. My philosophy on being a BA is that I have 3,000 bosses and that I will always do my best to work FOR the members. On a personal note, I have been married to a great gal for 22 years; we have a 17 year old Son who makes us proud every day. My family and my Union family are both important to me, and I hope I never let either of you down.
David Winkler - Auditor
I am 48 years old and have been a proud member of Laborers Local 110 since 2006. I currently work for U.S. Silica Plant in Pacific Missouri. I have over 20 years experience with conveyors and power transmission equipment. I love to trout fish, golf, hunt, target shoot, hike, ski, and traveling. I am very honored to serve on the Board for our Union.

I have been a laborer with Local 110 since 2006. I live in Hissboro Missouri. I am a family man with three beautiful children, ages 14, 11, and 4.

I am 38 years on and I’m a 17 year member of Laborers’ Local 110. My wife of 17 years and I have a daughter (16) and a son (12). I have lived in the High ridge area all of my life. My dad has been a member of LIUNA for almost 60 years and my brother has put in over 30 years as well. Several Family members, such as uncles, cousins, and my grandfather, were all members also. In my first 13 years as a Laborer, I worked mainly for General Contractors in a wide variety of work. In the last 4 years I have been in the Pipeline Industry working for Accurate Underground, a directional drilling company. We travel all over, but the majority of our work is in the Midwest. I am currently serving on the Executive Board and look forward to the possibility of being a Business Agent one day to fight for what is right for the members of Local 110. I always have a will continue to stand up for the working class.

I feel humbled to represent such a devoted, selfless membership and I am lucky to call you my brothers and sisters.
