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.
