You won't want to miss this informative presentation by Ceil Wendt Jensen. Straight from the Motor City, the lecture Working the Line covers the recruitment, training, and employment records as well as archives maintained by automakers and unions. What was life like for an assembly line worker at the plants during the automakers' heyday and what types of records were generated? Hand in hand with plant life was the formation and negotiations of the unions such as the UAW, AFL_CIO. This lecture covers records and publications relevant toe autoworkers and their unions.
