Naam van de archiefvormer



Thomas McClure was born and raised in Hamilton, Ont. and lived there all his life. He started work in the Sheet Mill at the Steel Company of Canada (Stelco) in 1928, joining the Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel and Tin Workers of North America. He became a major force in the Steel Workers Organizing Committee in the late 1930s. He was elected to the Stelco Works Council in the 1930s as well. He was elected president of Local 1005 in 1944 and again in 1945. He played a vital part in negotiating the first contract between Stelco and Local 1005 and served on the negotiation committee many times after that. In 1968 McClure retired from Stelco and was awarded an honorary membership in U.S.W.A. He died on 8 June 1976.
