Fisher Body Building with Pontiac's UAW Local 596

During the early stages of the United Automobile Workers union, Local 596 was created to fight for better wages and working conditions for hourly paid labor in the plants, strengthening the Pontiac community. When Pontiac's last Fisher Body plant closed in 1982, Local 596 ended active membership.
