Series I: Councils and Locals, 1926-1968

 Series

Scope and Contents

Correspondence, charter applications, a few charters, notices of local renewal, suspension or disbandment, clippings, constitutions, telegrams and contract agree­ments reflecting the functions of the Secretary-Treasurer. Some of the council and a few local papers detail their histories in jurisdictional disputes with other unions, councils or locals, their relationship with the International in problems with or controversies over both taxes and affiliation, or as trusteeships. Some locals formed by the Government and Civic Employees Organizing Committee (GCECC), the CIO public employee union, became AFSCME locals when AFSCME absorbed the GCEOC at the 1955 AFL-CIO merger. Those that retained their original GCEOC local number are indicated in the folder titles. Materials are arranged alphabetically by geo­graphical designation, and then by conference, council and local. Council files are usually in numerical order, but in special situations are filed chronologically. Locals are arranged by local number. A few materials not generated by councils or locals are placed at the end of the states they concern.
