Local 1 Video

This video is second in our BTCU Salutes series. It’s designed to celebrate and salute the thousands of building trades union workers in Minnesota.

This video features recently retired bricklayer and BTCU member Dick Kentzelman, who reflects on his great career of nearly 40 years in the trade…and how he overcame his fear of heights to make it to the top…of the Pillsbury Center. Dick also lets us in on some of the pranks bricklayers play on each other.

BTCU wants to salute your union! 

We’re looking for a few outspoken, fun-loving tradespeople to be part of our “BTCU Salutes” video series. 

We’re proud to serve the hard-working men and women of the building trades. That’s why we created this video series. Check out our first installment with Apprentice Coordinator Tom Reger of Local 633

Now, we’re looking to celebrate more great work and the people in the building trades. Could it be you? 

Simply send us an email and tell us why BTCU should  salute your union. If we choose you, your work and your union will be spotlighted in our next video.

Can’t wait to hear from you! Contact us today!
