Abstract:

Labor leader and steelworker Frank Lumpkin was born on October 23, 1916 in Washington, Georgia. Joining the Merchant Marines in 1943, he took part in a strike organized by the integrated National Maritime Union. His belief in communism took hold. In 1949, Lumpkin moved to Chicago and married Beatrice. Wisconsin Steel Mill hired Lumpkin in 1950 where he worked until 1980 when it closed down because of a corrupt scheme. Lumpkin organized the "Save Our Jobs Committee". Under his leadership, the group picketed in Illinois and Washington, D.C. After 17, years, "Save Our Jobs" succeeded in winning multiple court settlements totaling $19 million. Although this represented a small monetary victory for the 2,500 workers the committee represented, Lumpkin succeeded in proving that united, people are strong. Lumpkin was a member of the Communist Party. He also worked with Citizen Action. Lumpkin passed away on March 1, 2010 at age 93.
