Costco is coming to town

After two years of hard work, Costco has finally come to town and will be opening its doors on October 27. It is located at 5800 Park Lake Road in East Lansing. We need to support those companies that support labor and Costco is a labor-friendly company. A company that takes care of their people with good pay and benefits, unlike some of those others guys, like Walmart, that don’t.
Walmart is antiunion and spends millions of dollars every year on attacking unions and their members everywhere. They pay substandard wages and hire a bunch of part-time people so they don’t have to give them benefits. So get out and welcome Costco to our community.
Election endorsements
We have elections coming up on November 7 for our local government offices and we have endorsed the following candidates:
Mayor – Andy Schor

Please get out and support and vote for the candidates that support us.
We have the Making Strides for Breast Cancer walk coming up October 14 at the Lansing Capitol, starting at 9 a.m. I hope to see you all there.
October 21 at Local 652 is the UAW Region 1D Veterans Committee “Chili Cook Off.” It runs from 1-4 p.m.
Also on that day, in the parking lot, the Local 652 Recreation Committee will be holding their annual Halloween Trunk or Treat for all the kids. It will start at 2 p.m. and run until 4 p.m. So dress the kids up and bring them out. It should be a lot of fun for all.
