Summary

This large building is named after Roy Reuther, a United Auto Workers leader and brother of United Auto Workers International President Walter P. Reuther, who was an early supporter from national labor unions. The building included a large union hall and served as headquarters for the United Farm Workers (UFW) from 1969 until 1971. On July 29, 1970, hundreds of grape strikers and boycotters watched as Delano-area growers signed their first UFW contracts in Reuther Hall.
