There's always more that can be done

Be strategic. Don't just keep running a play that isn't working. But if you want to get ahead, do more. Try more. Learn more. Push harder. Work longer. Dream big and execute bigger. That's the way forward.

Union blasts decision to bring in out-of-state workers to build roads

Local 324's five-year contract expired in June but the union workers stayed on their jobs until Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association, which represents the contractors, imposed a work stoppage on Sept. 4.
The local has said it does not want to negotiate a new contract with MITA. The union said it preferred to bargain with individual contractors.

Cadillac moving headquarters to Warren

Cadillac moved to New York four years ago in search of a new start for a brand that was failing to appeal to a new generation of luxury buyers — and to create distance between GM's luxury marque and its mainstream siblings. But on the onset of an ambitious product launch schedule, Cadillac is shrinking that distance to put its team closer to the engineering and design hub at the Warren Technical Center.

Cadillac's headquarters is heading back home, but will keep some "brand presence" at Cadillac House in New York's SoHo neighborhood

Non-union workers to restart road construction in Michigan

The Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association has announced that non-union workers will replace union workers to continue construction on Michigan's roads.

This resolution came hours after Gov. Rick Snyder announced Tuesday a solution still had not been reached in the road building dispute between union members and contractors.

Gov. Rick Snyder: still no deal on road construction stoppage

Several major projects across the state have been brought to complete stop as the lockout dragged on, including the massive 696 reconstruction, 75 bridge projects, and roughly 150 other projects.

Michael Nystrom, executive vice president of MITA said the lockout is a result of "coercive, disruptive and unlawful activities the union has spearheaded against MITA contractors." Nystrom said that the lockout will end when the union ratifies the proposed contract which increases wages and benefits by $8 per hour, or 14.4 percent over five years to $63.67 per hour.

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder was hopeful Tuesday morning to announce an update on the ongoing lockout with the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association (MITA) and the road workers union - but three weeks after the stoppage, nothing has changed.

How will 5G revolutionise the manufacturing sector?

A subset of Industry 4.0 is smart manufacturing, defined by The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as systems that are “fully-integrated, collaborative manufacturing systems that respond in real time to meet changing demands and conditions in the factory, in the supply network, and in customer needs.”
This strategic application of technology is making the manufacturing process increasingly intelligent and dynamic, allowing the concept of smart factories to become a reality.

The successful adoption of new technologies into the manufacturing sector depends on the rise of 5G, according to Brendan Lynch

Four leadership principles for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

For a prosperous #future, we must ask how all of us, and the technological systems we #design and #build, can serve the proper ends and not be confined to the means. Our efforts must focus on the #impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution on human beings, society and the environment, and not just focus on technological progress or economic productivity.

“Leadership in these complex times requires nothing less than a wholesale shift of our mental models,” writes Klaus Schwab.

🌍It's important to think global perspective with the future of work. (Account for migration!)

Survey shows the majority of people would move to USA for work. We must prepare for and consider this.

👇If you think the future is some vague distant place in time, you're going to be blind-sided by reality very soon. It is not a matter of IF technology and automation replaces jobs, it is a matter of WHICH jobs, WHEN and what that means.

"Yes, change is the basic law of nature. But the changes wrought by the passage of time affects individuals and institutions in different ways. According to Darwin’s Origin of Species, it is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself. Applying this theoretical concept to us as individuals, we can state that the civilization that is able to survive is the one that is able to adapt to the changing physical, social, political, moral, and spiritual environment in which it finds itself."

Many Michigan road construction projects halted by lockout of heavy equipment operators

Both sides are dug in. MITA officials said they won't relent until the 2,000 or so operating engineers off the job from Marquette to Monroe accept their contract.
Union officials said MITA refused to negotiate all summer, so they aren't talking now.

Metro Detroiters are willing to deal with the nuisance of a construction project if it means getting a pockmarked road fixed. But now, many orange barrels are remaining on roads without any work going on behind them.

🇺🇸CALL TO ACTION!! Did you know that the proposal the legalize marijuana in Michigan which will be on the November ballot includes millions of dollars allocated to research PTSD in our veteran community? This initiative will legalize adult use marijuana for all adults 21 years of age or older, as well as industrial hemp. You can review the full text here:https://www.regulatemi.org/initiative/
The CRMLA Director of Outreach, Lissa Satori, is looking for veterans who are willing to be public in their support of the passage of this proposal in November. Anyone willing to write letters to editors, be present at press conferences to show support, allow your image or a quotation to be used, or even be in a video is encouraged to contact her ASAP at:[email protected]

We are all painfully aware of the high rate of veteran suicides and the challenges of PTSD. Here’s our chance to help make a difference.
