GM & UAW: In Their Own Words

Eugene Osmond
Eugene Osmond was born in Janesville in 1908. He worked for forty years at the Chevrolet plant. He was one of the earliest members of the United Auto Workers at the Chevrolet plant; he served as a trustee and a frequent member of the bargaining committee. During the union’s formative period Osmond devoted much time and energy to the recruitment of new members. His tapes contain much information on the nature of work at Chevrolet and on the formation of Local 121 of the UAW.
