Subseries 7. Rate Administration and William J. McShane Files

Scope and Content Notes:

William McShane began working for the National Tube Company in 1946. By 1953, he had become the supervisor of Organization Planning and Rate Administration. Some of his duties were to appraise the abilities of managers and initiate changes in the organization, as well as salaries or wages, of plant workers. After their merger he was responsible for these areas at both the National and Duquesne plants. McShane worked in Rate Administration and Organization Planning into the 1980s.

Included in this subseries is a 1957 book with files on those working in the Duquesne Works’ Central Operations. Information on their birthplace, nationality, education, salary, work history and military experience are available along with a photograph of each man. Personnel files regarding employees’ removal from the payroll also include data on work history and salary. National Plant Rate Bureau subject files are alphabetized and include such information as management charts for every USX open hearth blast furnace.
