The Metalworkers' Union (IG Metall) was the first DGB trade union to continuously deal with the immigration of foreign workers and to establish nationwide organisational structures in the area of migration.
Matziari's study focuses on the exact reconstruction of IG Metall's migration policy since the Second World War.
How did the different milieus within the trade unions and especially within IG Metall react to labour migrants and state migration policy from the 1950s? Which conflicts in trade unions and companies were caused by immigration, which were ethnically coded? What political and trade union experiences did the immigrants bring with them from their home countries?
The present study investigates these questions with a wealth of materials.
