Developer to buy former GM properties and develop them

Well, this is good news. It may not be new news to everyone, but it's well worth reading this article in the Lansing State Journal. It begins: "A Kansas City company has agreed to buy and redevelop all four of the Lansing area’s former General Motors properties that were abandoned when the automaker declared bankruptcy in 2009."

Conference on Election Results this Monday, Dec. 5
This item, which we posted earlier, seems even more important now, given the anti-union election results. Note that it is, however, on a Monday, work day, you know ...
The Labor Education Program at Michigan State University announces that registration is open for a special one-day labor movement briefing on 
Election 2016: State and National Impacts on Bargaining, Health Care, Employment and Labor Law at the Kellogg Center, MSU, East Lansing on December 5. The luncheon speaker will be UAW Region 1D Director Gerald Kariem.
This conference is designed to give all participants the latest information on the 2016 election outcomes and impacts in areas of concern to the labor movement: Bargaining, Health Care, the Economy and Employment, and Labor Law.
The one-day conference at MSU’s Kellogg Center will take place on Monday, December 5 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 (registration and continental breakfast start at 8:30). The conference, which also includes lunch, breaks and parking is being offered at a substantially reduced cost; the registration fee is $50.
Please reserve your seats early – registration closes on November 23. If you have any questions, call John P. Beck of the Labor Education Program at 517-432-3982.
Local 724 President Dean Poggiali says that in the past these sessions have been very informative and worth the $50. For more information on the speakers you can see the pdf below. To register, go to their website.
