Union Local Scores a First

Baltimore Local 2610 of the United Steel-workers of America, representing more than 12,000 members in the steel-making division of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation's Sparrows Point plant, has appointed Alfred G. "Scotty" McGrorty as organized labor's first full-time alcoholism counselor and coordinator.

Charles "Casey" Robinson, Local 2610's president, has asked Bethlehem to give the union's alcoholism counselor "permission to move unobstructed throughout the Sparrows Point plant, consulting with department heads and supervisors who have requested his services."
