Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The records of URIS preserved at SCL cover the approximate period 1945-1955. They are arranged in a single alphabetical file. They are also identified geographically, primarily to highlight which files pertain to Los Angeles.
The California CIO Council's Union Research and Information Services (URIS) was the research arm of the state CIO Council from the mid-1940's to the early 1950's. Housed in the Los Angeles CIO building at Avalon and Slauson, it was directed by Sanford Goldner. Like the research departments of most unions, the CIO Research and Information Services gathered and analyzed information about political, economic, and governmental issues pertinent to industrial workers. Among these issues were collective bargaining regulations, job classifications, wage determinations, unemployment service, and the Taft-Hartley Law of 1947.
