This interview is one of a series conducted with former employees of the Huntington Owens-Illinois, Inc. glass bottle factory. Maynard begins this interview with the recounting of his work history at Owens, where he was employed for thirty-two years. He left the plant at the time of the December 1993 shut-down, unwillingly, as he had intended to stay employed at Owens until the course of his duties as president of the local Glass Bottle Blower's union was finished. Maynard describes the relationship between workers and management in the factory, as well as the "decline" of the plant in its last few years of operation.
