President Hoffa toured the construction site, meeting with the Teamsters Union-affiliated construction team working to bring the center to life.  The project architect shared blueprints and samples with Hoffa, giving him a sense of the final vision for the research center, while Gelman Library staff described the room's future as a center for scholarship, musuem-quality exhibits, and events devoted to the exploration of labor history.
