International Association of Bridge, Structural & Ornamental Ironworkers, Local 55 - MS 77 mf
The first transfer of records of the International Association of Bridge, Structural, and Ornamental Ironworkers, Local 55, to the Center for Archival Collections was conducted by Paul Yon, then Associate Director, with the cooperation of John Kasap, Financial Secretary/Treasurer of Local 55, on May 30, 1979. These records consist of three microfilm rolls of minutes (1918-1973), and a limited amount of dues registers and miscellaneous printed material. An addition consists of eight linear feet of Negotiation Committee Minutes (1960-1986), Joint Apprenticeship Committee Minutes (1953-1965), extensive correspondence (1947-1986), union agreements (1948-1994), steward reports, financial reports, and apprentice educational material.
With the addition, this collection has grown into a most valuable research tool for scholars interested in the activities, priorities, and beliefs of labor unions, as reflected through Local 55. Literary, copyright, and property rights of this collection have been dedicated to the public. Duplication is permitted for the purpose of preservation and scholarly research. Kristin Dusseau processed the addition to the collection in February 1999, with additional revisions added by Marilyn Levinson, Curator of Manuscripts.
Local 55 was chartered by its parent organization on February 16, 1903. It was originally affiliated with the American Federation of Labor; however, since the "great merger" of 1955, the union has been a member of the AFL-CIO. Membership records of all locals are held at the International Organization located at 1715 N.Y. Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20006.
According to John Kasap, Financial Secretary/Treasurer of Local 55 in 1979, the by-laws of Local 55 must follow the guidelines set down by the International constitution. One of the most important functions that the International provides is adjudicating jurisdictional disputes among locals involved in a problem within the same geographical area. In addition to the authority of the International, Local 55 contains within itself several ruling offices, including: President, Vice-President, Business Agent, Financial Secretary, Treasurer, Recording Secretary, Sergeant-at-Arms, Conductor, Examining Committee, Executive Committee, and Trustees. Any office may be combined with another and held by one individual.*
*John Kasap, Financial Secretary/Treasurer of Local 55. Interview, March 10, 1980.
The records of the International Association of Bridge, Structural, and Ornamental Ironworkers, Local 55, include the minutes of the executive board, the Wage Negotiation Committee and the Joint Apprenticeship Committee. Correspondence, steward reports, agreements, contracts, financial ledgers and reports, membership records, and apprentice educational material round out the collection. Taken together, this collection provides a rather in-depth look into the activities and thoughts of union officials and the employers who contract with them.
At the heart of the collection are the minutes. Not only do these records document the activities of the executive board, the minutes follow negotiations concerning contracts and agreements, and the activities of the union's educational programs. The minutes of the executive board act as a brief introduction to the union's history. Although the series is nearly complete, gaps do occur from March 1920 through December 1923, November 1942 through December 1944, and July 1971 to June 1972. The minutes of the Joint Apprenticeship Committee are complete despite their short span from 1953 through 1965. Finally, the minutes of the Wage Negotiating Committee cover the years from 1960 to 1986, and exist in four-year intervals that span the life of each successive agreement. Applications for membership, member termination notices, and attendance lists are also included.
The correspondence is rather extensive (1948-1986) but scattered, and includes letters between the union and the International Headquarters, government agencies, union members, employers, the Northwest Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council, the Associated Building Contractors, and the inter-trade Joint Apprenticeship Committee. The Collective Bargaining Agreements are complete from 1948 through 1994. The agreements span two and four-year intervals and are a valuable source for researchers looking to document the ways in which unions have impacted corporate management and the local economy over time.
Additional materials consist of the financial reports, the steward reports, and the educational printed material. Although the steward reports are extensive and complete, the records span only three years from 1973-1975, with the exception of one from 1979-1980. Although they provide a limited amount of information, the reports may be of use to those researchers looking to find documentation of job site problems or activities. The financial records are limited and include dues registers (1926-1929, 1931-1936, 1942-1946), financial reports, payment vouchers, payroll information sheets, and wage scale forms. The printed materials consist of three journal articles on apprenticeship training, a newspaper clipping about the union's training program, apprenticeship training standards, journeyman examinations, general working rules, and miscellaneous pamphlets.
