Transcript of interview conducted by Trevor Griffey; 2003.

Andes discusses the politics of racial integration in the building trades from 1969-1975, and also touches upon the social composition of the post-World War II electrician's union, the evolution of the construction industry, and local labor politics. In the interview, Andes claims to have witnessed Tyree Scott, later the leader of the movement to integrate the building trades, apply for union membership. The interview also describes his experience at a protest at Seattle Central Community College in June of 1972, where both Austin St. Laurent, then head of the Building Trades union, and Mr. Andes were assaulted by African-American protesters.
