Tyree Scott and the United Construction Workers Association:

Tyree Scott grew up in Texas and served in the U.S. Marine Corps before moving to Seattle in 1966. When he arrived in Seattle, Scott worked for his father, who was an electrical contractor. When Model Cities, a federal antipoverty program led by local civil rights activist Walter Hundly, organized local black contractors to help them gain access to lucrative federal construction contracts in the Spring of1969, Tyree Scott emerged as the leader of this new group, the Central Contractors Association (CCA). https://depts.washington.edu/civilr/ucwa_history.htm
