This week in labor history in 2009 – General Motors files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The filing made the automaker the largest U.S. industrial company to enter bankruptcy protection. It went on to recover thanks to massive help from the UAW and the federal government.

Locally, Laborers’ Local 773 is proud to host the Annual Edward M. Smith Scholarship Golf Tournament at Kokopelli Golf Club in Marion, IL on June 22, 2023.
The Edward M. Smith Golf Tournament is one of the most well-known tournaments in Southern Illinois. The Annual Golf Tournament is the organization's main source of funding for the Connell F. Smith-Homer Brown Scholarship Fund. The scholarship was established in 1986 to provide members and their families the opportunity to improve their lives by assisting them with the opportunity to further their education and obtain a college degree. On Thursday, golfers will have the opportunity to enjoy a day on the green with free beverages all day, an early breakfast as well as a lunch & dinner provided to all participants. The day will wrap up with an abundant amount of prizes, souvenirs and gifts including cash prizes for winning teams.
