Southern Millwrights Jumpstart a Failing Non-Union Project

When a non-union contractor fell behind on a $200 million project at a United Parcel Service regional hub spanning more than 1.1 million square feet in Arlington, Texas, Millwright Local 1421 helped turn around the job in time for the facility to process essential supplies for health-care workers at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis.

“I could not be prouder of the millwrights on this project," said Wayne Jennings, executive secretary treasurer of the Southern States Millwright Regional Council. "They have truly shown that the Southern States Millwrights are safe, productive, and professional. I personally thank everyone on the project for their commitment to excellence.”
