expand/collapse Expand/collapse Scope and Content

Files, 1976-1980, primarily containing clippings and press releases, relating to the conflict between J. P. Stevens & Co. and the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union (ACTWU), especially to the positions of various church organizations and officials with respect to the union and a union-called consumer boycott of J. P. Stevens & Co.

The majority of the files appear to be materials Shuping accumulated as a member of J. P. Stevens & Co.'s Church Advisory Committee. These include suggested statements to be made to church groups, suggested answers to questions, articles about statements by church officials, and Stevens's responses to these statements. Much of the material relates to positions of the Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church and of the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church. Additional material concerns a statement by southern ministers, a statement by six Catholic bishops in the South, and a meeting of Stevens officials with representatives of the National Council of Churches.

Some correspondence between Shuping and Charles E. Shannon and others concerns Shuping's membership in and financial support of West Market Street United Methodist Church in Greensboro, N.C.

There is also a small amount of correspondence between Shuping and members of Congress, especially North Carolina senators Robert Morgan and Jesse Helms, about labor legislation.
