UAW Borg-Warner Department Records

Identifier: LR001201


A prominent American automotive components and parts supplier, Borg-Warner (later rebranded as BorgWarner) had factories across the US and Canada represented by the UAW. The UAW Borg-Warner Department Records are the documents of the office within the UAW’s international headquarters that oversaw the union’s operations at Borg-Warner plants. These records consist of correspondence with the union locals representing Borg-Warner employees, arbitration proceedings, strike pamphlets, collective bargaining agreements with Borg-Warner subsidiaries, and much more.
