Welcome back from the Memorial Day holiday. The LMC thanks all veterans for making our country possible.
Esther George Speaks at 31st Mid-America Labor/Management Conference
Esther George, Bud Stallworth and Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway highlight the 31st Mid-America Labor/Management Conference July 10-13 at Camden on the Lake.
President of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank, George serves this year on the Fed committee that sets interest rates. She gave an outstanding keynote address at last year’s Labor-Management Council Anniversary Celebration and Awards Dinner, and actively seeks the views of business and labor leaders throughout the Kansas City Fed’s territory.
Bud Stallworth is a former NBA and University of Kansas basketball star. He is former director of design and construction at the KU Medical Center and served in the Design and Construction Department of the University.
The conference will also feature a session of the Missouri Court of Appeals hearing oral arguments in several labor-related cases, and a presentation from the Parkway School District and Missouri National Education Association on their labor-management partnership. Matthew Capece, Carpenters, will discuss independent contracting issues and a utility industry session will also be held.
Workshop topics include safety, NLRB issues, millennial diversity and a mock arbitration. Members of the Kansas City Chiefs alumni group will host a reception and offer prizes, and a golf tournament will be held at the Oaks, Tan-Tar-A.
