Bay Area Student Committee to Abolish the House Committee on Un-American Activities Records, 1958-1965

Container Title
Subseries: SERIES 11: Contract File, 1945-1965
Physical Description: 23 boxes 
Scope and Content Note

Primarily a file of labor agreements between the Hosiery Workers Union and employers, the series also includes correspondence, memoranda, supplemental agreements, extension agreements, arbitration briefs, union label agreements, and clippings.

These contracts served several purposes. They defined relations between local unions and individual employers already bound by the National Labor Agreement. They were supplemental agreements relating to fringe benefits, union labels agreements, hiring, seniority, and contract extensions, but the great number of them were basic contracts between the union and independent employers, meaning those employers not parties to the National Labor Agreement.

The file also includes correspondence with or between the following: union officers and representatives, employers, the Department of Labor, the Impartial Chairman, branch officers, organizers, and negotiators. Topics include wage reopenings, arbitration requests, notices of contract cancellation, employer requests for wage reductions, notices of disputes to the Department of Labor, notices of strikes to employers, working conditions, work rules, contract proposals, wage rates and revisions, dues checkoff, seniority, vacations, insurance, pensions, and overtime.
