Collection Scope and Content Notes

This subgroup contains charter applications completed by prospective locals of the United Electrical, Radio, and Machine Workers of America (UE). Applications contain the local number and location, date the local formed, names of organizers who assisted the local, companies encompassed by the local, and chartering officers' names. Applications of particular interest include locals that joined the UE from the United Farm Equipment and Metal Workers of America on November 1, 1949. Applications for locals in Districts 2 and 10 are not present. Charters of several locals are also included in this collection.

A spreadsheet of the applications in this collection has been created. This spreadsheet lists the district, number, company, location, founding date, and chartering date for each local represented by the applications.


Arrangement

Files are arranged numerically by district number. Within each file, individual applications are filed numerically by local number and chronologically if more than one application exists for a local.
