This article provides information pertaining to the International and Comparative Labour History conference held in October 1994 at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. The difficulties of cross-border support in the presents-day food processing industry was described by Brad Markell, a representative of the United Automobile Workers. The post-war militancy in the General Workers Union was addressed by Stephen Ashby of the Calumet Project for Industrial Jobs, as well as the response to international organization. Another aspect of this conference also dealt with the self-inflicted wounds constraining international organization in the Cold War period.
