STEELTOWN by Charles H. Walker


Email this review


Fifth in the Yale Labor and Management Center Series, this is an intensive, specialized study of a ""major managerial and technological decision""- that of the National Tube Company in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania, to move its plant to Gary, Indiana. This is a structural study revealing the effect of this decision on the community (a one industry-one nationality town) which also shows the life within the plant, the attitudes toward the union, toward management, with an analysis of the problem form the point of view of the ""parties at interest"". Of documentary value.
