In late 1977, Zenith announced that they were closing their electronics manufacturing plant here in Sioux City.

George Lindblade, in association with the local Machinist’s Union, shot a film called “We Didn’t Want it to Happen This Way” which told the story of the 1500 Zenith jobs going overseas and to Mexico.

OC………were taken to. ;23

Now 42 years later, Lindblade says a sequel to this film is being planned:

OC……….follow up on. :18

The rights to the original film have been obtained from the machinists union and next month a crew will come to Sioux City to talk to surviving Zenith workers or their family members:

OC……….their life. :15

Lindblade has begun reaching out to some of those former Zenith workers.

OC…….movies again. ;26

If you worked at Zenith in Sioux City or know someone who did, you may contact Lindblade at 712-255-4346.
