Scope and Content

Collection consists of collective bargaining agreements negotiated by various union local and companies, mostly in California, collected by Caltech's Industrial Relations Center, which began its process of labor contract acquisition in the mid-1930s in response to inquiries by companies regarding industry norms concerning particular contractual clauses. Contracts were numbered and coded with 49 main variables onto McBee keysort cards. They include 570 CIO contracts, 450 AFL, 50 AFL-CIO, and 230 independent unions.
