Scope and content

Photograph showing four unidentified workers, three women and a man, standing in line at a desk to sign up for “No Work, No Woo” at the Albina Engine & Machine Works shipyard in Portland. A woman who may be Jeannine Christensen, a welder and president of No Work, No Woo, is sitting in a chair at the desk and is either taking or giving a small card to the last woman in line. No Work, No Woo was an effort started by female employees at the Albina shipyard to reduce absenteeism. Workers pledged not to date anyone who hadn’t put in a full week’s work. Image note: The text “Albina shipbuilding / 9/3/43” is written on the negative sleeve. The date is unverified.
