Pedigo talks about his work with the Textile Workers Union of America. Hired in 1939 by George Baldanzi to organize textile workers in locals throughout the South, Pedigo explains how his new job was an eye-opening experience in contrast to his work organizing the American Viscose union. Here, he focuses specifically on his experiences in Winchester, Virginia, where he was hassled by company men who opposed unionization. For Pedigo, this experience offered a crash course of sorts in the art of organization.
