book review:

An interesting if not very entertaining history of the electrical workers at GE and Westinghouse between 1930 and 1960. It is interesting to read about these two companies and how GE continues as a major corporation and Westinghouse, I think, doesn't even exist any more. The book also deals with the split within the electrical workers in the 1940s. It is very well researched and talks about why in three factories (Schnectady, East Pittsburgh, and Erie) the workers either stayed with the leftist United Electrical workers or went to the anti-Communist International Union of Electrical Workers.
