Adapted from the May 2014 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Local 99 of the International Union of Operating Engineers may be moving to Largo, Maryland, if the group can find a buyer for its headquarters building at 2461 Wisconsin Ave., says business manager Michael R. Murphy. “If it’s not the right price, we’re not opposed to staying there,” Murphy says. The union already owns space in Largo, where it moved its evening training classes last September, he adds.
IUOE is soliciting bids for the 12,000-square-foot Glover Park space through the end of July. The building, of 1970s vintage, was formerly owned by Georgetown University for its dental school, according to Murphy. The Georgetown University School of Dentistry closed in 1990.
