Outstanding Public Service by a Local/ADC

Augustus Pollack Monument, and Fire FighterWest Virginia Administrative District Council 

Augustus Pollack Monument 
Wheeling, West Virginia 

Throughout its great history, our Local 1 West Virginia brothers and sisters have come together for many volunteer projects, but this past year may have topped them all. 

First, Local 1 WV volunteers moved and reassembled the 38-ton Augustus Pollack statue in Wheeling, West Virginia. The granite sculpture, which honors a true champion of labor, is the only one in the country that was funded and built by a union for an employer. 

In addition, our brothers and sisters built a memorial to fallen fire fighters, a beautiful brick pier with inlaid granite plaques with the names of those who lost their lives in the line of duty.

With these remarkable volunteer projects, Local 1 West Virginia members continue to lead the way in public service.
