TMT Contractor Proud of BAC Role in Industry
Journal: April - May 2002
Local 32 Michigan honored one of its own — Anthony Maiuri — with a lifetime achievement award at Local 32’s Tile/Marble/ Terrazzo Exposition last November. In presenting the award, Local 32 President Robert Wilson thanked Maiuri for his leadership and commitment to the Union and the Industry.
Maiuri credits much of his success as a craftworker and contractor to his membership in BAC. As a Local 32 member and contractor, he experienced the value of BAC and IMI from both sides of the table. His career in the tile/marble/terrazzo industry began in 1946, and took him from a tile apprentice to President and founder of Shore Tile Company.
Along the way, he did much to help strengthen the unionized masonry industry. A firm believer in the superiority of Union training programs and market promotion, Maiuri, a board member of the Detroit Ceramic Tile Contractors Association, helped forge a strong bond between the Association and IMI.
“Joining forces with BAC and IMI was the best thing we ever did as an Association,” says Maiuri.
