In October, 1965, Rutgers University received the Records of the International Union of Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers, AFL-CIO (IUE), in accordance with the agreement between the IUE and the University Library designating Rutgers as the official repository for the archives of the union. The first accession group of IUE Archives contained approximately 495 linear feet of material and was transferred to Rutgers in the original office transfiles formerly stored at the union's international headquarters in Washington, D.C. These transfiles contained records and documents generated and collected by IUE President James B. Carey and other union officers, the various IUE Departments and their heads, and the constituent district offices and local unions from 1949 (the inception of the union) to 1961.

The records of the IUE Publicity Department, comprising 47.5 linear feet, constitute a subgroup within Record Group I of the IUE Archives. Files contained with this subgroup were left relatively intact by the union and reflect the order imposed by their creators, Arthur D. Riordan, Publicity Department Director (1950-1958), Ray Hansen, Assistant Publicity Department Director (1955-1957), and James Toughill, Director of the IUE- sponsored radio series Pipeline.

Arrangement, processing, and description of the Publicity Department Records-Record Group I, IUE Archives, was initiated and completed in 1993 after the Special Collections and Archives Department of the Rutgers University Library received a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) and additional financial support from the International Union of Electronic, Electrical, Salaried, Machine & Furniture Workers, AFL–CIO.

Administrative History

The Publicity Department of the International Union of Electrical Workers (IUE) AFL-CIO, though formally established as a departmental entity by the IUE's constitutional convention in December 1950, had actually functioned since the chartering of the union by the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) in November 1949. Its primary responsibilities were threefold: to carry the union's story to the membership; to inform the general public of the activities of the IUE and the labor movement in general; and to assist IUE officers, departments, and local unions in organization and collective bargaining work.

Because of the rapid growth of the IUE's membership during the early 1950's, and organized labor's internecine struggle for jurisdictional control within the electrical, radio, T.V. and electronics industries, the Publicity Department assumed broader duties than similar departments in other unions. From 1949 to 1958 the IUE waged an aggressive publicity campaign to combat raiding by rival AFL-CIO affiliates and wrest jurisdictional control within the major electrical firms--General Electric, Westinghouse, and RCA--from the communist-dominated United Electrical, Radio, and Machine Workers of America (UE), which had been expelled from the CIO. The Publicity Department's first director, Arthur D. Riordan (1950-1959), and his assistant, Ray Hansen (1950-1957), played key roles in planning organizational campaigns targeting these "chain" corporations and defeating the UE in important National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) elections-- particularly at the largest GE plants in Lynn, Massachusetts and Schenectady, New York.

The IUE Publicity Department provided invaluable assistance in the drive to organize Southern and Canadian electrical workers between 1954 and 1957. In these crucial organizing campaigns, departmental staff and field representatives printed and distributed leaflets, bulletins, and advertisements to educate prospective rank and file members. Through various media, including radio and television, the department informed workers and the public on various labor issues as well as the progress of organization drives, conference board negotiations, and strikes-- particularly the important Westinghouse Strike of 1955-1956, the longest nation- wide strike in the history of the electrical industry.

In addition to attacking racial and job discrimination, right-to-work legislation, and the existing wage- differential in the South, the IUE Publicity Department exposed the unfair labor practices and union-busting tactics associated with GE and "Boulwarism." Its staff assisted international officers in the research and writing of speeches, the preparation of radio and television scripts, and the drafting of press releases and statements. The department played an integral role in shaping IUE policy on various labor-management issues, legislative and political affairs, and important social action programs--including civil rights, women's issues, and community service projects.

To carry the IUE's message to its rank and file membership the Publicity Department printed its official journal, The IUE AFL-CIO News. Published bi-weekly since 1950, the labor periodical chronicled the activities of the international union and its officers, carried feature articles on local unions, covered the labor movement in general, and noted economic and collective bargaining trends within the electrical industry. A special newsletter, Inside the IUE AFL-CIO, was initiated shortly thereafter to provide local union officers and shop stewards with important economic data and news. Under the direction of a veteran news journalist, James Toughill, the IUE also initiated the daily radio series, Pipeline, to reach its members and inform the public. The Publicity Department maintained research files on electrical manufacturers, legislative affairs, civil rights, and other topics to assist officers and departments in the preparation of speeches and publicity material.

Scope and Content

The records of the IUE Publicity Department consist of 47.5 linear feet of material, chiefly documenting the myriad activities and work of the departmental directors, staff, and field representatives who served the international union from 1950 to 1960. Record contents trace the Publicity Department's historic role in disseminating essential information to the IUE membership and shaping public opinion on labor issues. Because the IUE Publicity Department functioned as a clearing house for information for all departments of the union, its work extended to virtually all phases of IUE activities in the fields of organization, collective bargaining, political action, civil rights, public relations, and reporting of local union news. This subgroup provides evidential documentation of the Publicity Department's internal administration and operation, its bureaucratic relationship to other IUE departments, and highlights the expanding scope and function of the Publicity Department as the IUE evolved as an institutional entity.

The Publicity Department records are divided into fourteen distinct series which generally reflect the order imposed by their principal creators, Arthur D. Riordan, Ray Hansen, and James Toughill. Riordan served as the Publicity Department Director and Managing Editor of IUE-CIO News from 1950-1958. Hansen occupied the post of Assistant Director from 1955 to 1957 before his appointment as an executive administrative assistant to IUE President James B. Carey. He incorporated his executive administrative correspondence and memoranda files within his Publicity Department files. James Toughill, a department staff member, directed the IUE radio Series Pipeline from 1957 to 1959. All maintained their own correspondence, memoranda, and general research files within the Publicity Department Records but merged all other essential departmental files covered by the date span 1950 to 1960.

The records of the IUE Publicity Department include correspondence, memoranda, telegrams, and circular letters sent and received by the Publicity Department Director, Assistant Director, and staff. The bulk of the correspondence was generated by Riordan and Hansen, but also includes letters and memoranda sent and received by President Carey and Secretary-Treasurer Albin Hartnett, IUE organizers, field representatives, and local union officials.

Much of Riordan's outgoing correspondence and memoranda files, dating from 1950-1958, his handling of administrative affairs--chiefly arrangements for the publication and distribution of the union's newspaper, IUE-CIO News, and the preparation of other union-issued publications and bulletins, and organizational literature. Incoming correspondence and memoranda from field representatives and organizers largely concerns requests for publicity material used in conjunction with organizing drives, NLRB elections, strikes, and contract and conference board negotiations. Ray Hansen, Assistant Publicity Director, assumed more direct responsibility for coordinating the department's publicity work during organizing campaigns and strikes. His correspondence and memoranda reflect a special interest and concern with the union's struggle against the UE and radicalism in the labor movement. Moreover, the Hansen-Carey memoranda files (which are contained in Hansen's general files) provide historical information on the progress of ongoing IUE organizational campaigns, local strike conditions, and the Publicity Department's role in assisting the union in planning organizing drives and union elections.

Riordan and Hansen maintained extensive general research files consisting of: press clippings; articles on labor issues and social, economic, and political topics; IUE educational and organizational pamphlets; convention press kits; AFL and CIO union newsletters; and corporate publications. This material was used to prepare speeches, statements, press releases, radio and T.V. scripts, and reports issued by Carey and Hartnett. Riordan's general files are particularly significant for their coverage of local strike and collective bargaining activities during the early 1950's within the major chain corporations--G.E., Westinghouse, Sylvania, and Philco. The Press Clippings series, 1954-1955, is devoted exclusively to the nationwide Westinghouse strike and GE negotiations of 1955 and supplements Riordan's general files on these corporations.

The Publicity Department and its directors generated and maintained its own publications files which included: issues of the union's official organ, IUE-CIO News (1950-1955); its newsletter for IUE shop stewards, staff, and international representatives, Inside IUE-CIO (1951-1958); and press releases issued under the banner, News From the IUE-CIO, (1949-1958). Editions of the IUE-CIO News are far more complete than the IUE newsletters and press releases. IUE Local Union and district publications, consisting of newspapers, bulletins, newsletters, circulars and leaflets, were also kept on file to historically document local union activities and conditions during strikes, organizing campaigns, and union elections.

The important role which the IUE Publicity Department played in assisting in the IUE's organizing work during the 1950's is amply documented in the Publicity Files for Organizing Campaigns series. Beside containing leaflets, broadsides, press clippings, and other organization ephemera, these files house correspondence and memoranda tracing the evolution of IUE organizing strategy at the regional and local levels, and the coordinated efforts of the Publicity Department and IUE field organizers. The IUE's struggle against the UE and jurisdictional strife with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and International Association of Machinists highlights emerges as a prominent theme in many of the organizing campaigns. Coverage is more extensive for the major corporate campaigns for the period 1954-1957--especially the GE- Schenectady campaign of 1954. Included in these files are a variety of anti-union circulars, leaflets, employee newsletters and newspaper ads issued by employers. A supplemental series devoted to District 5, Canada, contains much of the same material but focuses exclusively on the Canadian subsidiaries of GE and RCA, and IUE organization work in Brockville, Peterborough, and Prescott, Ontario and Montreal.

From 1957 to 1959, the IUE committed considerable financial resources to disseminating IUE news to its members and the public via radio and television. Several related series within the Publicity Department Records document these endeavors. The research and correspondence files of James Toughill, director and narrator of the IUE-produced radio series Pipeline, provide information on the origins, administration, and marketing of the program. Toughill also prepared statements, television and film scripts, and press releases for IUE President James B. Carey and Secretary-Treasurer, Albin Hartnett. Related series include transcripts and audio recordings of the Pipeline Series. The reel-to-reel master recordings contain interview segments with IUE officers, labor officials, and prominent legislators which are not included with the scripts.

In conjunction with its publicity work on legislative initiatives, election campaigns, political education programs, and civil rights, the department generated and collected a small series documenting IUE activities in these areas. These research files include press clippings, periodicals, voting records of legislators, political handbooks, and pamphlets with particular emphasis on the Democratic Party, the elections of 1956 and 1958, and labor political action committee work. Publicity Department civil rights files are included with this series and contain reports, bulletins, and memoranda generated by the IUE Civil Rights Committee. There is also material relating to a race-baiting campaign initiated by the Northern Electric Company (NECO) to counter IUE organization efforts at its plant in Bay Springs, Mississippi.

1. CORRESPONDENCE OF DIRECTOR ARTHUR D.RIORDAN , Date Span: 1950-1958, Quantity: 1.50 LN. FT.

Grouped chronologically for years 1950-1953, with outgoing correspondence files (1954-1958) arranged by date of letter.

Incoming and outgoing correspondence, memoranda, telegrams, press releases, and organization leaflets generated and collected by Arthur Riordan, Director of the IUE Publicity Department. These materials reflect the scope and range of activities and responsibilities assumed by Riordan and his staff and provide information on the administrative functioning of the department. The bulk of the incoming correspondence and memoranda from field representatives, local unions, and international officers includes: requests for publicity material used in conjunction with organizing campaigns, NLRB elections, and conference board negotiations, revisions to the mailing list of the IUE-CIO News, and the compilation of research material for inclusion in speeches, press releases, and radio and television broadcasts.

Riordan's outgoing correspondence and memoranda largely document his administration of the publication and circulation of the IUE AFL-CIO News. Requests to IUE field representatives and local union officials for information, photographs, and articles on the status of organizing campaigns, conference board negotiations, and strikes, also comprise a substantial portion of this series. The assistance given by the publicity department to other IUE departments and its institutional relationship with the AFL-CIO's Publicity Department are highlighted as well. Included are letters from Riordan to labor journalists and newspaper editors requesting the publication of feature articles on various IUE activities. Among Riordan's correspondence files is a typescript copy of James B. Carey's statement on the historic settlement between IUE and GE in 1950 that granted the union recognition.

Arranged chronologically by topical heading.

Research and correspondence files generated and collected by Ray Hansen, Assistant Director of the IUE Publicity Department and assistant to IUE President James B. Carey. Hansen prepared speeches, press releases, reports, statements and media scripts for Carey. His research files provided the essential information for drafting such material. Contents include: newspaper and periodical clippings, corporate and trade newsletters, IUE press releases and publications, AFL-CIO and various union newsletters, typescript speeches, radio and television scripts, organization leaflets and publicity material, conference board minutes, and minutes of IUE Executive Board meetings. Topical files cover the full spectrum of trade union activity with an emphasis on IUE organization drives, NLRB elections, unemployment during the recession of 1957, and corruption in labor.

Hansen's letter files contain both incoming and outgoing correspondence and memoranda. Principal correspondents include Carey and other IUE department heads, field representatives and organizers, local union officers, AFL-CIO officials, and labor journalists. The correspondence files contain memoranda from Hansen to Carey outlining the status of organizing campaigns, NLRB elections, contract negotiations, and strikes. They illustrate Hansen's and the publicity department's influence in shaping IUE organizing strategy and the substance of Carey's speeches and addresses on important labor and social issues.

5. PUBLICATIONS/NEWSLETTERS OF THE IUE , Date Span: 1951-1957, Quantity: 0.33 LN. FT.

Grouped by title and thereunder arranged chronologically by date of publication.

Consists primarily of Inside IUE-CIO (1951-1954) and IUE-CIO News (1950-1955), both published by the IUE Publicity Department. Printed bi-weekly, Inside IUE-CIO (a four-page lithographed publication) informed IUE staff members, local officers, and shop stewards on vital economic and legislative news. IUE-CIO News, the official organ of the IUE, was largely distributed to the rank and file membership. The twelve-page tabloid carried feature articles on important strikes, negotiations, collective bargaining agreements, and pending legislation vital to the interests of the IUE membership. During the 1950's its circulation reached a total of 450,000. A special strike supplement, The Westinghouse Picket (October 31, 1955-March 19, 1956), was issued to provide coverage of the IUE strike against the Westinghouse Corporation. This series also contains issues of the GE Employee Newsletter (1951-1953), which the IUE kept on file to monitor GE personnel policies and trends in corporate welfare programs.

Arranged chronologically by date of release.

Consists primarily of IUE press releases issued under the title News From the IUE-CIO, in mimeograph, lithograph, and typescript format. Prepared by the publicity staff and distributed to wire services, newspapers, and radio and television stations, the releases were intended to inform the media and public of the IUE's position on various labor-management issues and current developments in conference board negotiations, strikes, organizing campaigns, and legislation and political affairs. They were also distributed to IUE field representatives to keep them abreast of activities in other regions and IUE districts. The publicity department used the press releases as a counterweight to corporate propaganda and "misinformation" campaigns aimed at discrediting the union. The bulk were prepared in the form of press statements for IUE President, James B. Carey, who served as the official spokesperson for the international union.

7. PUBLICITY FILES FOR ORGANIZING CAMPAIGNS , Date Span: 1950-1958, Bulk Date: 1954-1957, Quantity: 4.60 LN. FT.

Arranged alphabetically by corporate and geographic name.

Organizing campaign files generated and maintained by IUE Publicity Department Director Arthur D. Riordan and Assistant Director Ray Hansen. Contents include: organization leaflets, broadsides, and memorabilia issued by the IUE; memoranda and correspondence, newspaper clippings and advertisements; anti-union handbills and circulars issued by electrical manufacturers; NLRB election material and sample ballots. The bulk of this material documents the evolution of IUE organization strategy at the local and regional levels and highlights the publicity department's role in assisting the work of field organizers through the printing of campaign literature and assignment of staff members. Regional and local organizing drives against the large "chain" corporations--GE, Westinghouse, RCA, and Sperry-Rand--are given extensive coverage while smaller companies receive less attention.

This series is rich in documenting the struggle between the IUE and the UE for jurisdictional control in the large GE and Westinghouse plants. Much of the organizing campaign literature generated in the early to mid- 1950's publicized the alleged ties between UE officers and the Communist Party of America (CPA). Jurisdictional strife among the IUE, IBEW, IAM, and UAW also figures prominently in the publicity department organizing files. Memoranda and correspondence are interspersed throughout the files and touch upon such subjects as: the challenges posed by UE organizers, GE efforts to foment jurisdictional strife to the corporation's advantage, opposition to right-to-work legislation, and Southern organizing strategy.

8. CANADIAN FILES , Date Span: 1948-1954, Bulk Date, 1953, Quantity: 0.65 LN. FT.

Arranged alphabetically by subject and geographic location.

In his capacity as Assistant Publicity Director, Ray Hansen maintained separate files devoted to IUE organizing campaigns, labor board elections, and research material pertaining to IUE District 5, Canada. His files chiefly cover IUE organizing campaigns and representation elections at the Peterbourough, Prescott, and Brockville, Ontario plants of Canada General Electric (CGE). In these plants, the IUE and UE waged a fierce contest for representation rights. File contents include anti-UE leaflets, broadsides, and circular letters. A small amount of Hansen's outgoing and incoming correspondence is deposited in several files, documenting organization work in progress, assessing local labor conditions, and evaluating pending decisions by the Ontario Labour Relations Board. In addition, Hansen collected issues of local newspapers, news clippings, and the union's Canadian organizing bulletin, The IUE-CIO Magnet.

9. PUBLICATIONS/LEAFLETS OF LOCAL UNIONS , Date Span: 1949-1958, Bulk Date: 1953-1957, Quantity: 8.25 LN. FT.

Grouped by district and arranged by local union number.

Local union newspapers, newsletters, and bulletins collected and maintained by the IUE Publicity Department. These files include IUE District organizing leaflets, circular letters, convention material and various state CIO Industrial Union Council publications. A small amount of correspondence from local and district officers to Arthur Riordan and Ray Hansen is interspersed throughout the files, highlighting publicity efforts in conjunction with a variety of union activities.

Department staff and IUE international officers relied on the publications files to obtain historical and research material on local union activities. During the course of organizing campaigns and strikes the Publicity Department augmented these files with newspaper clippings to gauge public opinion and ascertain the extent of corporate domination of the local media. The Publicity Department also collected and deposited anti-IUE literature (leaflets, circulars, bulletins, and newspapers) printed and distributed by the UE and management. IUE organization memorabilia and ephemera is also contained within this series.

10. OFFICE FILES OF JAMES TOUGHILL, DIRECTOR OF PIPELINE RADIO PROGRAM , Date Span: 1955-1960, Bulk Date: 1957-1959, Quantity: 1.0 LN. FT.

Arranged alphabetically by topic and subject heading.

Office files generated and maintained by James Toughill, an IUE Publicity Department staff member and director/narrator for the IUE-produced radio series Pipeline. Toughill prepared scripts, interviewed IUE officers and prominent political figures, gathered research material, and corresponded with radio station managers as part of his programming and administrative duties for the series. He also produced film and T.V. scripts for various IUE projects, and arranged for Carey's appearances and interviews on radio and television programs.

The bulk of the series consists of Toughill's correspondence and memoranda files, drafts and finished scripts for Pipeline, typescript press releases, statements, addresses, interviews, and mailing lists. Also included are reports on local union activities submitted by IUE International Representative, George Gould, (representing IUE locals in Fort Wayne, Indiana) for Pipeline, WGL, Forty Wayne. This series contains a small amount of material (addresses and proceedings) pertaining to the IUE's Employment Security Conference of 1958, and photostat excerpts of the IUE-GM 1958 national-level negotiations. Much of Toughill's correspondence and memoranda concerns administrative and promotional arrangements for the marketing of the radio series, the handling of requests for transcripts and taped segments of programs, and critical letters from the IUE rank and file and listening audience. Promotional leaflets, advertisements, and decals are among the ephemera documenting IUE sponsorship and promotion of the radio series.
