Mayor Street sues the governor's office to nullify the state takeover. The Commonwealth Court rules in Street's favor, but the ruling comes with an automatic stay, giving the state more time to reassert control over the Convention Center. Another judge overrules the stay, returning the reigns once again to the city. The case is now before the state Supreme Court, and in the meantime nobody--save a few bearded legal scholars in flowing robes--is really quite sure who the hell is in charge of the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Meanwhile projected citywide convention bookings--conventions big enough to take up 2,000 hotel rooms--will be down nearly 50 percent by 2008, and projected hospitality revenues will be down by almost $100 million. And even the sunniest projections indicate it will only get worse. This is bad, people. Very, very bad.

“Would love to see the 2012 version of this story. The carpenters are such whores. They steal work from local 19 sheet metal workers, local 30 roofers, liironworkers, and even laborers. They are able to do so because most Geberal Contractors are Union Carpenters. The economy is horrible right now, yet I know a bunch of "corryell cronies" that make great $ working in the convention center as "furniture fags", and who couldn't even hang a picture on the wall, but make $38 an hour. And, to end this rant, I would like to add that Ed jr is under investigation for using union labor and time to build his private home in NJ. About time Local 8's country club got what is coming to them”
