Charlie Micallef, retired Director of the IAM Retirees, Community Service and EAP Departments, joined this week’s program to talk about past struggles to bring black workers into the established union movement.
As the Machinists’ unofficial historian, Micallef explained how hard it was for African Americans to break the color barrier in unions, including within the IAM.
