Jursidictional files of President James B Carey, 1951-1964 (bulk 1954-1962).

Documents the resolution of jurisdictional conflicts involving the IUE and other unions for the period 1951-1964. The bulk of the files chronicle complaints and charges filed by the IUE and other disputants in jurisdictional hearings before the AFL-CIO Executive Council. Impartial umpires and arbitrators were retained by the Federation to adjudicate disputes. The majority of cases involved investigations of union raiding, boycotts, and organizational activities in violation of the AFL-CIO non-raiding agreement of 1953. A smaller quantity of supplementary files cover union mergers and organization matters involving other unions. This series highlights the fractious relationship between the CIO affiliates of the Industrial Union Department and craft-dominated unions aligned with the Building and Construction Trades Department of the AFL. The jurisdictional struggles the 1950s illustrated the tenuous position of many unions struggling to maintain their membership in the immediate post-merger (1955) era. Moreover, they exacerbated the growing rift between IUE President James Carey and AFL-CIO President George Meany. Carey's dissatisfaction with the Executive Council's handling of jurisdictional matters pushed the combative IUE leader to the brink of considering disaffiliation with the AFL-CIO.
