Fenton Art Glass is a family-own glass company that has been making decorative and utilitarian glassware - vases, figurines, baskets and other colorful art glass - since 1905. The factory in West Virginia employs about 120 workers on one shift. At its height, more than 700 worked day and night. From day one, Fenton employees had a union – the American Flint Glass Workers - and now, the United Steelworkers Local 508.
