Industrial Union of Marine and Shipbuilding Workers of America (IUMSWA) archives
The Industrial Union of Marine and Shipbuilding Workers of America (IUMSWA) was formed in 1934 to unite all shipyard workers regardless of their trade/craft or level of skill. Records include extensive documentation of locals' activities and contracts; national administration; organizing efforts; negotiations; conventions; National Labor Relations Board and National War Labor Board cases; actions taken to stabilize the shipbuilding industry; and relationships with other unions. The IUMSWA archives also contain records from unions outside the shipbuilding industry that were in some way associated with IUMSWA, such as the United Railroad Workers of America, Marine Draftsmen's Association, and the Provisional Metal Workers Council.
