Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The documents were collected ca. 1980 by Hugh Scullion and Paul Edwards whilst working at the University of Warwick. The majority of the records relate to shop floor trade union organisation at the Bordesley Green factory of the Forward Radiator Company, part of the British Leyland Motor Corporation. The published result of the research is a chapter in Terry and Edwards, eds., 'Shopfloor Politics and Job Controls.'
This collection is available to researchers by appointment at the Modern Records Centre, University of Warwick. See https://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/library/mrc/using/
