Subseries 3. Boycott

Scope and Content Notes:

Sub-Series 3 documents the boycott that AWU launched against Armour and Con-Agra. There is much correspondence to local politicians, clergy, and grocery store owners to support the boycott. AWU also sent out multiple copies of a letter to other unions and other locals, along with a form to be returned, on which the group could indicate how many flyers they would distribute, whether they wanted someone from AWU to come and speak at one of their meetings, and if they could make any monetary donation. There are many of these returned forms in the files. There are also flyers about rallies, lyrics to a boycott song, newspaper clippings, and many more letters of support from former Armour employees and others. There is also a videotape with a meeting on planning and sustaining the boycott.
