Social Unionism in Action

Little Rock: “Ottenheimer (Kellwood) Employees: Take the word of those who KNOW…”

Private collection

ILGWU flyer featuring individual workers in garment shops in other town, and their stories, followed by the comment “Now you know why Mr. Guthunz wouldn’t let a group of you get off to visit these union shops in Arkansas!”

One featured worker is Thelma Williams, an operator at Climatic of Clinton…a union member for only a year but with $2015 in benefits from the union health fund. She “never thought of being a union member,” but now “could kiss the card I signed for the union.”
