The Union Labor Works family is heartfelt & sorry to learn of the
passing of Mr. Ayers and would like to express our condolences to the
office of the Building Trades and to the Ayers family and friends on
this tragic loss.
Below is a press release taken from bctd.org.
"It is with deep sadness that the Building and Construction Trades Department announces the sudden and untimely passing of its President, Mark H. Ayers, on April 8, 2012.
President Ayers was a labor leader of vision, innovation, passion and integrity, and it was through his leadership that North America's Building Trade Unions were on the path to success and increased market share for the union construction industry.
Although our hearts are heavy today, our spirits are lifted by virtue of the unsullied legacy of a working man who was grounded and guided to his core through the values that were instilled in him during this upbringing in Peoria, Illinois. Mark Ayers was a true trade unionist in every sense of the word, and it was through that commitment to bettering the lives of working families that he was able to offer so much to his country, his family, and the labor movement.
Funeral arrangements will be announced in short order."
