Union Fighting Funds support union members involved in labor disputes with employers. The fighting funds are financed by union employees who contribute portions of their pay to the fund. United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of American (UE) Local 107 operated from 1936 to 1986 at the South Philadelphia Works of the Westinghouse Company in Lester, Pennsylvania. Westinghouse employees threatened to strike in 1952, and breakdown in labor talks culminated in a major walk-out in 1955 involving 45,560 employees shutting down half the company’s production.
