Correspondence of United Electrical, Radio, and Machine Workers of America International Officers, 1936-1956.

The records of the UE International Officers document correspondence between high ranking UE officers and outside organizations. While the vast majority of the materials are correspondence, the files also contain related articles, pamphlets, and reports. In general, these files range widely in content regarding the national union and cover many general topics such as lawyers, bonds, college requests for information and speakers, group health insurance, hospitalization plans, publications, trustees, unions, and women's auxiliaries. Correspondence with such noteworthy organizations as the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO), National Labor Relations Board, Steel Workers Organizing Committee (SWOC), and United Automobile Workers of America (UAW) are present. These records do not contain correspondence by the union's International Representatives, which can be found in subgroup UE 7-2, UE International Representative Records.
