British factory worker and his American counterpart on an international exchange visit to the Lockheed aircraft plant in Los Angeles (WW2)
A British guest on labor exchange program visit to the U.S. is staying as a house guest of his counterpart American in Los Angeles, California. We see him with several friends of his host, who also work at the Lockheed aircraft plant. They are teaching him the card game of poker. The leave to attend a meeting of District Lodge 727, International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, AFL-CIO (Lockheed-California Company). There the British guest is allowed to ask questions of the union. He and his American counterpart are seen at a podium as the Briton asks about the strength of the union inside the Lockheed plant. The local union Secretary responds that they have 45 thousand members in the Lockheed plant and, noting that the British man was a shop steward back in England, mentioned that the local also had 3000 shop stewards in the Lockheed factory. The British visitor asked how the union would be affected after the war, when labor requirements would be reduced. A member answers that the first action would be to return to a 40 hour work week (from the wartime 50 hour week). He states that some workers would return to pre-war work and jobs. Finally, he says they expect Lockheed to expand the scope of its manufacturing to include consumer goods. The union is asked about accommodating workers returning from the military and answers that it is covered in the union contract, which calls for their seniority to continue to accrue while in service. The union also provides for war injured handicapped workers to return to work, and sponsored legislation to provide post-service education opportunities for all returning veterans. Asked about women now employed in the plants, one woman union member stated that many would return to their homes. But the immediate need is to employ more women to the help the Allied forces win World War II as soon as possible. Regarding the prospect of post-war employment, one union member noted the national need to convert from wartime production to the manufacture of consumer goods. The union members favored the idea of continuing labor union exchange visits between the Allied countries in the future. Location: Los Angeles California USA. Date: 1944.
