About a dozen union members worked together Monday morning setting up The Way We Worked exhibit at the National Churchill Museum.

The first-ever Smithsonian Institution exhibition to come to the museum has been a collaborative effort from many area agencies. Nine area unions have all chipped in to help staff the exhibit during its duration in Fulton. Four of these have loaned tools from their various trades to be part of the display.

Jim Winemiller, business representative for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 257, said he was learning about the old methods and tools of his trade just by setting up his union’s display of tools. He worked with others Monday helping to organize each section of the exhibit.
