“Digitized Files Give Rare Glimpse of Anti-Union Advocacy” (A New Digital Collection From Cornell University)
From the Cornell University Library:
When companies go toe to toe with labor unions, they call people like Leonard C. Scott, a former human resource and labor relations executive who also served as a consultant specializing in fighting unions and preventing them from forming in the first place.
Cornell University Library’s Kheel Center for Labor-Management Documentation and Archives in Catherwood Library, in the ILR School, recently digitized the anti-union files, dating from 1966 to 2013, that were donated by Scott in 2007. These files, which provide a rare insider’s view of anti-union advocacy, are now fully accessible online.
Scott’s papers run the gamut – from a one-page list of do’s and don’ts for supervisors during a strike, to “ventilation” reports documenting grievances aired by employees, to memos detailing procedures for counter-union campaigns.
