Records, mainly 1955-1981, of a Milwaukee local of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) established in 1939 to represent workers at two Milwaukee areas plants of the Square D Company. In 1991 the local was amalgamated into Local 2336; Local 2336 in turn became defunct in 1998. Included are bylaws and charter documents; minutes, 1934-1939, of the local's predecessor, the Federal Labor Union Local 19926; minutes of general membership, executive board, and other administrative meetings, 1939-1981; membership and election information; correspondence of leaders such as Arthur Jaraczewski and Walter Scanlan; newsletters; and other administrative records. Several special meetings are documented only by tape recordings. Incomplete files of printed contracts, letters of agreement, background information and detailed minutes of bargaining sessions document collective bargaining dating from 1939 to 1985, and transcripts, correspondence, briefs, and background information partially represent grievances from 1960 to 1981. Subject files document social gatherings, charitable support, union solidarity, the construction of the union hall, and the Square D company. Financial records consist only of check stubs, 1972-1983.
