ATU to Purchase Labor College Property(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)The National Labor College expects that the property that the college campus sits on “will be sold by the end of July to the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), so the beautiful property will stay in the labor family, which is wonderful,” the College reports on its blog. “The Workers Memorial will also stay on the property, as ATU has agreed to serve as the host for the memorial,” the blog reports. “We will all still be able to visit a place that has meant so much to so many over the decades.” The NLC’s academic program is now closed, and the operations of the College are being wound down during May and June. Although no longer offering an academic program, National Labor College will remain as a fully accredited college for the next 18 months while approximately 200 students with approved degree plans will be taking courses at other institutions and transferring them back to National Labor College to complete their NLC degrees. photo courtesy Studio39
