Arrangement

Folders are listed by their location within each box. Titles are grouped by creator (i.e., SEIU International, local, council, etc.) and those with multiple issues are listed chronologically. Although many titles have a date range, it does not necessarily guarantee that all published issues of the title within that date range are on file.

Acquisition

The materials were acquired in various SEIU accruals, from the early 1990s to the mid 2000s.
