GM PLANT POEM BY
WILLIAM WALLACE: I am
sure I am not the only one that drives by our GM Plant in Janesville and
actually misses the traffic jams at shift change, parking lots full and
overflowing with cars and trucks, and people bustling to get into the
Plant and to work on time. We have amongst us a member who puts
his thoughts to poem. We requested and he graciously gave us
permission to print of one his works. "The Plant Is Now Empty"
We included with his poem an illustration by our own Bill Fitzsimmons,
which he did at the time of our GM Plant closing for our Local 95 Union
Our thanks to both William Wallace and Bill Fitzsimmons.
