Recently, I received 40 years of Cement Workers Union memorabilia from Mr. James Roth of Nazareth who, with his father, Roland, was active in the old United Cement, Lime and Gympsum Workers International Union.

As a college student, I was a member of this union with my father, almost 60 years ago. We were proud members of Local #115 U.S.L.G.W. at the Universal Atlas Portland Cement Company in Northampton.

One of the first Cement Workers organizers was Mr. Roland Roth. I asked Jim about his father's youth.
