Cavanagh, former director of the Greater New Haven Labor History Association, is an archivist, historical researcher, writer, and longtime peace and justice activist who has lived in New Haven since 1977. Her book is about workers and the community they created at the Winchester plant throughout the 20th century. The book traces the workers’ long struggle to form a union and the even greater challenges they faced as the company tried to break strikes, downsized, moved key operations out of New Haven, and repeatedly threatened to close if union members did not offer concessions.
