The rich histories of the Greenfield Tap and Die and the Union converged in 1940 when the plants organized. An hour-long talk, with period images, focuses on the years 1936-1956, from the birth of the powerful United Electrical Workers (UE) to its demise, except in Greenfield.  (Greenfield is still a UE town).  Program followed by a general discussion.

The Pioneer Valley Institute has been bringing programs to the public since 1989—resources designed to explore the rich and unique character of the Connecticut River Valle and its past, present and future. We offer the Valley's only varied series of workshops, field trips and lectures relating to the Valley. All programs sponsored by PVI are open to the public for free or at a modest cost. Please note that cash is not accepted for event registration.
