LOCAL NEWS BRIEFS - Final

Labor Department offices are starting to relocate

Some U.S. Department of Labor offices will move to new quarters at 130 South Elmwood Ave. over the next week.

The Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics relocated from the Dulski Federal Office Building to its new office today, while the Wage and Hour Division and the Office of Labor-Management Standards will follow Thursday.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program will make their moves Sept. 24.

The relocations are part of an effort to decommission the Dulski Building and move federal agencies to private space in downtown Buffalo. The federal building is slated to be vacant by the end of the year.
