811 Run Needs Runners and Sponsors!

Join your friends in the damage prevention industry, help promote safe digging and gather your team or employees together for the MN 811 Run/Walk around Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis on August 13, 2016.

The purpose of the MN 811 Run is to promote safe digging and awareness for 811. It provides stakeholders with the opportunity to work shoulder to shoulder with firefighters to educate the public on safe digging. All proceeds are donated to the Twin Cities Firefighters Operation Warm, a great non-profit organization that provides warm winter coats for children in Minnesota.

Event Sponsorship is $2,500 and includes your logo on the t-shirt, the registration website, a 10'x10' booth space at the event, and free race entrance for 30 people! For more sponsorship opportunities, contact Chris Thome at or call (952) 428-7968.

MUCA End of Session Recap

Unbelievable! For the second year in a row, the Legislature adjourned without completing major portions of its work. No transportation package and no bonding bill. The few items that did get passed included some tax relief, funding for the construction career pathways, and racial equity programs.

Read the MUCA Legislative Session Recap Here.

Department of Labor Issues Overtime Rule

The Department of Labor issued its Final Overtime Rule on May 18. This rule greatly expands the number of employees who are eligible for overtime pay. It goes into effect December 1, 2016. MUCA Members Stinson Leonard Street and Seaton Peters Revnew have some information and guidance on how to comply with this new Rule.

Read more from Seaton Peters Revnew. Also join them for a Breakfast Briefing, “2016 Labor and Employment Update,” on June 22 at the Crowne Plaza Bloomington/MSP Airport, 7:30-9:30 AM. To register, click here or call (952) 896-1700. Cost is $25 per person.

Amendments to MN Prompt Payment and Retainage Laws

Gov. Dayton signed a bill on May 19 that significantly amends Minnesota’s prompt payment statute and also limits retainage to 5 percent on all construction projects in Minnesota. The changes will apply to all building and construction contracts executed after August 1, 2016. Read Stinson Leonard Street’s update here.
