004-Walt Avery


John Ryder, at CK Williams, hired Walt Avery as an electrician on June 15, 1962. In 1968 he became the supervisor, and no longer punched in his clock #306. 

"I saw a lot of management come and go." 

He worked for GE before he came to CK Williams/ Pfizer, and there he was laid off six times in sixteen months. 

"Some plants have unions, but Pfizer pays better, and they don't lay off." 

He retired April 28, 1989.
