The Jackson Sub-regional Office was originally part of UAW Region 1B, which covered plants in Jackson, Pontiac, Washtenaw County, Kalamazoo, and Albion. In 1959, the regional offices were reorganized, and the Jackson area was placed under Region 1C, which then covered plants in Jackson, Flint, Lansing, Albion, Adrian, and Owosso. The Jackson Sub-regional Office coordinated UAW activities in the southwestern portion of region 1C. Two UAW international representatives in the Jackson office, Webb Magnor and Harold Marsh, were extensively involved in local civic, political, and charitable activities.
