UAW Vice President Jack Laskowski Records

Abstract

The UAW Vice President Jack Laskowski Records document the Volkswagen Department within the UAW. The records cover business between the International Union, the automobile maker, and three UAW locals. These three locals are sometimes referred to as the Volkswagen Council, and they include Locals 1933, 2055, and 129. Though the materials were sent over by Vice President Lawskowski, they do not document his work at the union. Instead, the records detail when Vice Presidents Martin Gerber and Bill Casstevens oversaw the Department in the eighties and nineties. The records consist of correspondence, memorandum, and negotiating materials.
