Materials include legal documents, as well as correspondence and printed materials, regarding arbitration, grievances, and other legal cases between companies and UE locals or the national union. A majority of the cases represent arbitrations or conflicts with Westinghouse or GE. Documents regarding the cases of individual UE members are also present.
