Provenance

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 1962.

The records of the Secretary-Treasurer's Office, comprising 64.00 linear feet, constitute one subgroup within Record Group I of the IUE Archives. Files contained therein were generated and maintained by the IUE's first Secretary-Treasurer, Albin Hartnett (1949-1962) and his principal staff members Rodger Coyne (Director for Organization and Administrative Assistant), Joseph Swire (Director of Health and Pension Programs), and Richard Bauer (Comptroller). Hartnett's office records and filing system initially formed the core and organizational model for the IUE's central office files. This artificial central filing system, however, was not maintained or organized along sound archival or records management standards. Subsequent accessions of the IUE archive revealed that Hartnett's files within the central office files represented a large but incomplete portion of the material accumulated by the Secretary-Treasurer's Office during his years in office. Upon transfer of the records to Rutgers University, Archivist William Miller and his staff merged and reintegrated other Hartnett material and records generated by subsidiary personnel and departments affiliated with the Secretary-Treasurer's Office. Hartnett's Conference Board & Negotiations files, which had been previously splintered from the main body of his files, were subsequently reintegrated in conjunction with this processing project.

Arrangement, processing, and description of the records of the Secretary-Treasurer's Office-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 Secretary-Treasurer's Office was formally established at the second annual convention of the International Union of Electrical, Radio, and Machine Workers (IUE) on 4 December 1950. Upon recommendation of the IUE Administrative Committee (which governed union affairs until ratification of the constitution), delegates unanimously adopted Article VII of the constitution which specifically outlined the duties of the office:

The Secretary-Treasurer shall keep all records of the Executive Board and of the Conventions of the Union. He shall receive, receipt, deposit and account for all monies, and pay all bills of the Union; furnish all supplies pertaining to the union; issue all credentials; give bonds satisfactory to the Executive Board; and perform all such duties as may be deemed necessary to a proper and effective administration of the financial affairs of the Union.

Subject to the overriding authority of the Convention and Executive Board, the Secretary-Treasurer serves under the direction of the IUE President and is empowered to "perform such duties, in addition to those specified ... as may be prescribed to him by the Executive Board or the President." The Secretary-Treasurer maintains a permanent seat on the union's Executive Board.

The Secretary-Treasurer's office essentially functions as the administrative apparatus of the IUE international office, executing the policies of the Executive Board and President and monitoring compliance by the constituent local and district councils. It maintains the union's central office files, including all correspondence between the national office and IUE district officers and local unions. Financial records regarding the payment of per capita taxes and dues are maintained by the Secretary-Treasurer's staff. Working with the IUE comptroller, the Secretary-Treasurer maintains central control over union expenses, vouchers, and salaries of the international officers, department heads, staff, and field representatives. This office has control over the issuance of local union charters and reviews all district and local union constitutions and by-laws for approval.

At the same constitutional convention, delegates elected Albin (Al) Hartnett as the union's first Secretary-Treasurer. Hartnett had served as a staff assistant to CIO Secretary-Treasurer, James B. Carey, subsequent to the latter's ascendancy to the IUE presidency.

Upon assuming office, Hartnett faced the difficult task of consolidating organization gains and fleshing out the unions's administrative bureaucracy--comptroller's department, district offices and officers, field representatives, organizers, business agents--which serviced the 300,000 members of the IUE. His office also had chief responsibility for directing and financing the IUE's organization activities. Though its rank-and-file membership had swelled during the period 1949- 1951, the IUE was financially strapped due to the mounting legal expenses associated with its struggle with the UE. Hartnett and his staff cautiously struck a balance between maintaining the IUE organizational impetus yet checking undue extravagance. To achieve sound fiscal administration of the union's operating budget and accounting system, Hartnett appointed Richard Bauer as the IUE's first Comptroller. Bauer held the position during the 1950's and his tenure enhanced the IUE's reputation as one of most efficiently managed and corrupt-free union treasuries in the labor movement.

The union made significant organizing gains during Hartnett's tenure as Secretary-Treasurer, winning several major NLRB representation elections and negotiating favorable contracts with the major electrical "chains" (GE, Westinghouse and Sylvania) and major independents such as Philco. As a leader in the CIO's Southern organization drive the IUE gained a foothold in several southern states--winning key elections at GE's Anniston, Alabama plant and the Singer Manufacturing Company at Anderson, South Carolina. Rodger Coyne (Hartnett's personal assistant and Director for Organizing Campaigns) and the constituent IUE Conference Board chairmen spearheaded the drive for organizing the "runaway shops" of the South and Southwest and expanded the union's organizing efforts into Canada and Puerto Rico. Substantial membership gains were achieved in the burgeoning lamp, tube, and television industries. The union's creation of a Radio, T.V. & Parts Conference Board brought this important industrial segment (55,000 IUE members) under the umbrella of its collective bargaining program. Adapting to the changing nature of the electrical, electronics, and machinery industries and their respective labor forces, the IUE expanded its membership base to include white collar engineers and technicians, and professional and salaried workers. By 1960 membership totals had advanced to an all-time high of 400,000.

Hartnett's office also coordinated the activities of the union's pioneering collective-bargaining apparatus--the Conference Boards and Occupational Councils representing locals within the major chains and the skilled, salaried and white-collar occupational groups. On the collective bargaining front, the IUE made substantial gains in the following areas: securing higher wages with built-in escalator clauses (cost of living adjustments); elimination of gender and regional wage differentials; implementation of stable and financially solvent health, pension, and insurance plans; union shop arrangements; employment security programs (i.e. guaranteed annual wage and supplemental unemployment benefits); refinement of grievance and arbitration procedures; and the formation of joint committees to evaluate job classification and wage incentive plans. Joseph Swire assumed responsibility for administering the union's health, pension and insurance programs and coordinating Conference Board negotiations on these issues. Swire drafted contract language and provisions governing health care and retirement and analyzed proposed contracts to monitor compliance with national office standards. He also reported to Hartnett, Carey, and other department heads on current trends and developments in the field. Though the union's demand for non-contributory pension plans (employer-financed plans) met with entrenched managerial resistance, the IUE refined its benefits programs with the objective of employers assuming a greater proportionate share of the funding.

In addition to his immediate fiscal and administrative duties, Hartnett represented the IUE before congressional committees and government agencies. He also served on numerous AFL-CIO administrative committees, and on the advisory boards of many civic, political action, and voluntary organizations. These appointments represented the expanding nature of the Secretary-Treasurer's Office and the degree which President Carey delegated executive authority to Hartnett. Hartnett and his staff (in conjunction with the IUE Legislative Department) administered the collection and distribution of union Political Action Committee (PAC) monies and orchestrated IUE political fund- raising activities within the framework of the CIO-PAC and AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education (COPE).

Appointed by the IUE Executive Board to chair the IUE Civil Rights and Fair Employment Practices Committee, Hartnett mandated the establishment of civil rights committees at the district and local levels, monitored local union contracts for the inclusion of non-discrimination clauses, and sponsored civil rights and human relations conferences to educate the IUE membership. This committee worked jointly with prominent national civil rights organizations to sponsor major civil rights legislation and conferences. These activities reflected the full range and scope of Hartnett's responsibilities as IUE Secretary-Treasurer during the 1950's.


Scope and Content

The IUE Secretary-Treasurer's Office subgroup contains 64.00 linear feet of historical records documenting the administrative evolution of the office and the legacy of the union's first Secretary-Treasurer, Albin Hartnett (1949 to 1962). This subgroup yields important evidential information on the functioning of the office and its operations during the formative decade of the IUE's existence. Ranking second to the President's Office in order of importance and influence, the Secretary-Treasurer's Office and its records provide the most comprehensive and authoritative source for studying the institutional history of the IUE. Virtually every facet of the union's fiscal, membership, and organizational affairs was administered by Secretary-Treasurer Hartnett and his staff. The Secretary-Treasurer's Office functioned as the vital nexus between the international headquarters and the local unions, with administrative assistants, field representatives, and business agents occupying key roles in servicing the needs of the rank-and-file membership. Moreover, the office had principal responsibility for preserving the official records and proceedings of the Executive Board and all IUE Conventions.

Consisting largely of Hartnett's central office files and the subsidiary files of important administrative assistants and directors--Rodger Coyne (Director of Organization), Joseph Swire (Health, Pension, and Insurance Director), and Richard Bauer (Comptroller)--the records of the Secretary-Treasurer's Office are organized into twelve distinct series. For the most part they reflect the functions of the office and the scope of activities performed by the principal generators of the records. Included are: Hartnett's General Files; General Correspondence Files; District Files; Executive Board Proceedings; Field Representatives Correspondence; Inter-Office Memoranda; Mimeographed Letter Files; Organizing Campaign and Research Files of Assistant Rodger Coyne; Political Action Committee Files; General Files of Comptroller Richard Bauer; General Files of Joseph Swire, Director of Pension, Health, and Welfare Department; and Hartnett's Conference Board and Negotiations Files.

Hartnett's general office and correspondence files are the best sources for documenting the institutional history of the IUE and its relationship with the major labor federations (CIO and AFL-CIO), their constituent departments, federal and state agencies, and various national organizations committed to legislative action on progressive causes. As Secretary-Treasurer, Hartnett served as Chairman of the IUE Civil Rights Committee and directed many of the IUE's community development programs. His general files contain educational conference proceedings, speeches and addresses, publications, and reports pertaining to civil rights, fair employment practices, human relations, and various social and political action programs. Coordination of the IUE and AFL-CIO's political education programs and campaign fund-raising efforts are amply documented in the AFL-CIO Committee On Political Education (COPE) files. The general files also served as central office research and reference files and demonstrate the administrative complexity and wide scope of the office and its functions.

Hartnett's correspondence, inter-office memoranda, and mimeographed letter files document his close working relationship with President Carey, IUE staff assistants (particularly Rodger Coyne), and other IUE department heads. Dating from 1951-1957, the bulk of the general correspondence files documents the routine administrative and fiscal chores which Hartnett performed. In many respects the Secretary-Treasurer's Office served as the union's clearinghouse for incoming correspondence to the President--much of it pertaining to business solicitations, requests for publications and information, and sporadic grievance letters from disenchanted rank and file members. Hartnett's office answered a considerable amount of the correspondence addressed to Carey and assisted in planning and arranging the IUE president's travel schedule and appearances. Hartnett also represented the union and its chief before government agencies and congressional hearings and panels.

Inter-office and staff memoranda is interspersed throughout Hartnett's correspondence files and supplemented by a larger self-contained series which dates from 1949 to 59. Besides chronicling daily administrative affairs, the memoranda cover such subjects as: the allocation of resources (financial and staff) for organization campaigns and elections; staff assignments and appointments; jurisdictional disputes: and the disaffiliation of UE locals. This series contains Hartnett's outgoing and incoming memoranda, including memos generated by his chief administrative aides, Rodger Coyne and Richard Bauer. A large portion pertains to per capita dues collection, the disbursement of union funds, PAC contributions, the status of organizing campaigns, and arrangements for chartering and administering new locals. The General Files of Comptroller Richard Bauer contain supplemental records documenting the IUE's fiscal administration of local union affairs--chiefly per capita payment reports, voucher and supply forms, invoices, and mailing lists.

The bureaucratic relationship between the international headquarters, its affiliated district offices, and network of field representatives is amply documented in two series: District Files and Field Representatives Correspondence. Sources contained therein (correspondence, memoranda, minutes of district council meetings, organization and certification election reports, demographic and research data on unorganized plants) provide first-hand information regarding the IUE's organization infrastructure and strategy in conducting regional (Southern) and local campaigns. Though the District Files only cover the period up to 1956, they do contain source material on PAC activity, the IUE-UE struggle for control of Local 301 at GE Schenectady, and conditions in District 6 (Pittsburgh) during the national Westinghouse Strike, 1955-1956. Accounts of strikes, handling of strike-relief efforts, allocation of resources, and the jurisdictional rivalry with the UE figure predominately in reports and correspondence filed by IUE Field representatives. The Field Representatives series chronicles the conditions and hardships experienced by IUE organizers-- especially women--in their efforts to sustain the morale of workers during organizing campaigns and strikes. Their correspondence files offer a revealing social history of the lives of organizers who experienced constant uprooting and mobility on the job, low pay, and harassment from management. This series is more voluminous than the district files and encapsulates the grass-roots issues involved in local strikes.

Rodger Coyne's Organizing Campaign and Research Files, 1950-1963, is a supplementary series documenting IUE organizing activities and NLRB representation elections at the local plant level. To some degree this series overlaps with the Publicity Files For Organizing Campaigns series contained in the IUE Publicity Department Subgroup, RG-1. The bulk of Coyne's files consist of publicity material generated in conjunction with IUE organizing campaigns. Anti- union publications and literature are included. A small amount of organization-related correspondence, NLRB election petitions, and press clippings comprise the research component of the series. Training manuals and educational conference material on organization provide a glimpse of the IUE training program for its field representatives and organizers.

Coordination of the IUE's collective bargaining programs and Conference Board activities are amply documented in the records of the Secretary-Treasurer's Office. Hartnett's Conference Board & Negotiations Files contain chronologically-ordered minutes, proceedings, and reports of the GE, Westinghouse, and Sylvania Conference Boards and their respective Negotiating Committees dating from 1951-1960. However, there are gaps between years which can be complemented by consulting the larger IUE Conference Board & Negotiations subgroup in RG-1. Hartnett's files, however, contain additional documentation on the IUE Lamp Workers Conferences, Radio, T.V. and Parts Conference Board, and Professional, Technical, and Salaried Workers Conference Board. Transcripts of negotiating sessions with the major chain corporations are included but incomplete for certain years. Coverage of such major strikes as the Westinghouse Chain Strike of 1955-1956 and the Sylvania strike (Local 744) at Shawnee, Oklahoma (1952) is extensive. This series also constitutes an important source for analyzing the union's Step Four grievance system operating at Sylvania Local 608, Huntington, West Virginia. There are extensive grievance petition and case files Deposited within the Sylvania Conference Board Files are extensive grievance petition and case files spanning the years 1951-1956.

The Secretary-Treasurer's Office subgroup contains minutes of IUE Executive Board meetings for the years 1951-1957, and incomplete IUE Convention material covering 1954 and 1956. The IUE President's Office subgroup- RG-1, contains more comprehensive Executive Board and convention records and proceedings.

2. GENERAL CORRESPONDENCE FILES , Date Span: 1949-1958, 1.35 LN. FT.

Arranged Chronologically

Consists of outgoing and incoming correspondence and memoranda generated and received by IUE Secretary-Treasurer, Albin (Al) Hartnett, President James B. Carey, and Rodger Coyne, Assistant to Hartnett and Director of Organizing Campaigns. Much of the correspondence pertains to Hartnett's performance of the routine administrative functions associated with his office. As Secretary-Treasurer, he answered a substantial portion of the general and miscellaneous correspondence addressed to Carey--schedules and appointments, conference and meeting arrangements, activities with civic and political action organizations, requests for publications, information, and business solicitations. In addition, this series contains many letters from rank and file IUE members requesting action on various grievances and support for organization drives and representation elections at the local level.

Memoranda generated by Hartnett and Coyne to Carey and other international officers contain information on the allocation of financial resources and staff for local and regional organizing campaigns. The memoranda highlight the problems the IUE encountered in its jurisdictional struggle with the UE. A few reports, incorporated into the body of the memoranda, analyze conditions at various UE locals and assess the probability of their disaffiliation. They include, in some instances, an analysis of certification election results and reasons for the success and failure of IUE organizing campaigns. The union's problem with frequent raids by such AFL affiliates as the International Association of Machinists (IAM) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) is also documented. Hartnett also kept Carey informed of factionalism within various IUE locals.

3. DISTRICT FILES , Date Span: 1949-1956, 3.20 LN. FT.

Grouped by district and arranged chronologically by year.

District office correspondence files maintained by IUE Secretary-Treasurer, Al Hartnett, documenting the bureaucratic relationship between his office and the network of district officers, field directors and representatives, and organizers comprising the IUE administrative hierarchy at the regional level. Records within the series illustrate how the union established its regional organization structure, allocated its financial resources, staff, and field representatives for organizing campaigns, and supervised the activities of its constituent local unions. District officers and field directors were responsible for maintaining the vital bureaucratic link between the national office and local unions.

The bulk of the series consists of outgoing and incoming correspondence which Hartnett and Carey generated and received from IUE district presidents, field directors, and international representatives. Minutes of district council conferences, district executive board meetings, organization reports, lists and research material on unorganized plants, and memoranda relating to PAC contributions, are also contained in Hartnett's district office files. These files include a small amount of organizing campaign literature and ephemera.

Much correspondence is devoted to the status of ongoing organization campaigns and analyses of certification election results, jurisdictional strife, and strike activities within the respective districts. Letters from district presidents and field directors provide detailed reports on the progress of current campaigns and elections at local plants, and include requests for additional organizers, staff, and financial support. The union's struggle with the UE in the critical period, 1949-1952 is well-chronicled in the District 3 files (including Local 301, Schenectady, NY), District 5 (the Canadian GE campaign in Peterbourough, Ontario), and District 6 (Westinghouse, Pittsburgh). The correspondence files reflect how Carey and Hartnett played an integral role in targeting potential plants for organization and coordinating strike-relief efforts. The IUE's contribution to larger CIO-sponsored regional organization campaigns is also documented in the district office files of Hartnett. In addition to these subjects, the files contain routine administrative correspondence pertaining to staff appointments, the collection of delinquent per capita tax payments by local unions, and the approval of district and local union charters, constitutions, and by-laws.

5. FIELD REPRESENTATIVES CORRESPONDENCE FILES , Date Span: 1949–1959, 7.80 LN. FT.

Grouped alphabetically by correspondent and arranged chronologically by date of letter.

Through its assigned field representatives, the IUE Secretary-Treasurer's office directed the union's organization campaigns at the local level, assisted local union officers in collective bargaining and contract negotiations, the drafting of constitutions and by-laws, and maintained the vital link between the IUE national office and the local unions. This series consists primarily of outgoing and incoming correspondence sent and received by IUE field representatives, which include organization and activities reports filed with the IUE Secretary-Treasurer's Office. Principal correspondents include Hartnett, Carey, and Rodger Coyne. The field representatives' files also contain leaflets and other publicity material used in conjunction with organization campaigns.

This series documents the daily work of IUE field representatives and highlights IUE grass-roots organizing efforts: establishing contacts within unorganized plants and locals held by other unions, visiting the homes of workers, drafting and distributing organization leaflets, filing petitions for certification elections and a myriad of other duties. Organization and activities reports provide detailed information on the anti-union environment within plants and cities, and jurisdictional problems which field representatives experienced in performing their tasks. Beside organizing activities, the reports chronicle the many services which representatives provided for locals within their district. They conducted meetings with local union officers, shop stewards, and grievance committees, assisted prospective locals in filing for certification election petitions and unfair labor practice charges before the National Labor Relations Board, and guided locals through strikes and contract negotiations with management. The series is especially rich in providing a social history of the hardships confronted by female union field representatives and organizers.

6. ORGANIZING CAMPAIGN AND RESEARCH FILES OF ASSISTANT RODGER COYNE , Date Span: 1950–1963, 11.80 LN. FT.

Grouped in two main sequences: organizing campaign files arranged alphabetically by corporate name, and, a smaller group comprising general research files arranged alphabetically by topic.

Publicity material, press clippings, mimeographed and lithographed handbills, circulars, and anti-union employer bulletins and newsletters documenting IUE organizing activities and union election campaigns from 1950-1962. These items were collected and filed by Rodger Coyne and Andrew Bennett (Assistants to the Secretary-Treasurer), both who coordinated IUE organizational work and campaigns. The campaign files include a small amount of organization-related correspondence from field representatives to Hartnett, Carey, Coyne, and Bennett which analyze organization strategy and NLRB certification election results. NLRB petitions and election documents are interspersed throughout the files.

In addition there is a small grouping of organization-related research and education files compiled by Coyne's office for use in planning IUE organization drives. Included in the files are clippings covering the issue of Communism and disaffiliation, organization reports from Coyne to Hartnett, and election results and analyses. Training manuals and a variety of educational literature provide evidential information on the union's programs for training organizers and educating the membership with respect to organizing and collective bargaining techniques. The extensive memoranda files pertaining to IUE elections (1952-1958) contain valuable tabulated information on plant location, size of membership and collective bargaining unit, other contesting unions involved, and election results.

8. INTER-OFFICE MEMORANDA FILES OF SECRETARY-TREASURER AL HARTNETT , Date Span: 1949–1959, 1.50 LN. FT.

Grouped alphabetically by correspondent, thereunder arranged chronologically

Files consisting of Al Hartnett's outgoing and incoming memoranda, sent to and received from IUE staff and department heads. Hartnett's memo files document his handling of the routine administrative functions of the Office of IUE Secretary-Treasurer. A substantial portion of the series includes the exchange of memoranda between Hartnett and Richard Bauer, the IUE Comptroller. All requests for the use of union funds were channeled through Bauer and required Hartnett's approval. These memo files largely pertain to fiscal matters and the disbursement of funds vital for the daily operations of the international union. Hartnett's office also issued local union charters and supplies (dues cards and books, buttons, stamps, etc.) to local unions, and kept detailed records on per capita dues payments and PAC contributions to the national office. The IUE Secretary-Treasurer had primary responsibility for forwarding per capita dues payments to the CIO and the Canadian Congress of Labour (CCL).

The full range and scope of Hartnett's activities and office is reflected in the memoranda: the issuing of local charters and approval of district and local union constitutions, supervision of field directors and representatives, dues collection, coordination of organizing and publicity campaigns pursuant to NLRB certification elections, conducting strikes, and contract negotiations with employers. Correspondents include (in addition to Bauer): Rodger Coyne (Assistant to Hartnett and Director for Organization), Les Finnegan (Assistant to President Carey), John Flynn (Legislative Director), Ben Sigal (General Counsel), Art Riordan (Publicity Director), David Lasser (Research Director), and Joseph Swire (Pension Department).

9. POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE FILES OF ALBIN HARTNETT, Date Span: 1950-1955, 1.15 LN. FT.

Organized in two sequences, Political Action Correspondence and Political Action Committee Literature, and arranged thereunder chronologically by year.

The IUE Secretary-Treasurer's office had primary responsibility for the collection and distribution of IUE- CIO PAC (Political Action Committee) funds and the coordination of election campaign activities with the CIO Political Action Committee. Hartnett served on the CIO-PAC Operating Committee which administered the labor federation's political fund raising, research, and campaign activities. Approximately one-half of the series consists of Hartnett's and Carey's correspondence with John (Jack) Kroll, Director of the CIO PAC. These files highlight how the IUE-CIO PAC coordinated its political activities with state and local industrial union councils of the CIO. Subjects include the status of current elections campaigns and collection of funds, the distribution of PAC monies to political candidates, memoranda on the CIO PAC's relationship with the Democratic Party, and arrangements for meetings of the CIO-PAC Operating Committee.

In addition, there are material and reports generated by the CIO-PAC Operating Committee and Research Division. Items include: typescript financial records of PAC contributions by IUE-CIO locals, memoranda, agenda, and confidential reports and analyses of election results at the national, state, and municipal level of government. Hartnett's political action files also contain issues (1952-1955) of the CIO-PAC bulletin-- Political Action of the Week.

11. GENERAL FILES OF JOSEPH SWIRE, DIRECTOR OF PENSION, HEALTH AND WELFARE DEPARTMENT, Date Span: 1950-1962,6.75 LN. FT.

Grouped into three main sequences: correspondence files (contents thereunder arranged alphabetically); inter- office memoranda (arranged alphabetically by name with multiple files arranged chronologically by year); and miscellaneous research material (filed alphabetically).

Correspondence, memoranda, and research files of Joseph Swire, Director of IUE Pension, Health, and Welfare Programs within the Secretary-Treasurer's Office. As Director, Swire had primary responsibility for devising, analyzing, and administering the various pension and economics benefits programs of the union. The bulk of the series consists of Swire's correspondence and inter-office memoranda to IUE national officers, District Council Presidents, Conference Board Chairmen, and local union officers--advising them on important legislative and legal matters pertaining to the administration of pension and welfare programs and evaluating various benefits programs proposed by management during the course of contract negotiations with the IUE. In important negotiations with the major electrical chain corporations and Conference Boards (i.e. GE, Westinghouse, RCA), Swire and his staff proposed contract language pertaining to pensions, medical and health insurance, vacation provisions, and unemployment compensation.

Swire frequently corresponded with representatives from actuarial firms to obtain economic and statistical data on the performance of current pension and insurance programs and the evaluation of proposed novel benefits programs. He collated material and kept research files on the pension and benefits programs of other CIO-affiliated unions and monitored new developments on the collective bargaining front with regard to profit sharing plans and wage incentive systems. In conjunction with the IUE Research and Education Department, Swire's department established educational workshops and conferences to facilitate the effective negotiation and administration of benefits programs at the local union level.

12. CONFERENCE BOARD & NEGOTIATIONS FILES OF ALBIN HARTNETT , Date Span: 1950–1960, Bulk Date: 1951-1956, 7.0 LN. FT.

Grouped alphabetically by corporate name and arranged chronologically.

Administration and coordination of the IUE's negotiations and conference board activities originated within the Secretary-Treasurer's Office. Though the various conference boards and their respective chairmen were given a wide degree of latitude in formulating collective bargaining programs and the composition of negotiating committees within their respective chains (GE, Westinghouse, Sylvania), the Secretary-Treasurer's Office had primary responsibility for orchestrating the activities of those IUE departments and staff members integral to the collective bargaining process. As negotiations with each of the major chain corporations necessitated the framing of an endemic bargaining program, the Secretary-Treasurer's Office strove for greater uniformity in contractual language and the elimination of industry and regional differentials with regard to wages, benefits, and working conditions. This series also reflects the complexity of modern collective bargaining and the increasing bureaucratization of industrial relations.

Record contents in this series chiefly document the activities of the following IUE Conference Boards and their respective negotiating committees: GE, Westinghouse, Sylvania, and to a lesser extent, IUE Lamp Industry Conferences, the Professional, Technical, and Salaried Workers, RCA, and Radio, T.V. Parts Conference Boards. Items include: minutes, resolutions, and reports issued by the various conference boards; memoranda and correspondence generated by IUE Conference Board Chairmen, IUE officers and staff members, and corporate executives and labor relations managers; contract agreements, proposals, and counter proposals; press releases, circular letters, corporate newsletters and other publicity material; speeches and statements by IUE officers and corporate executives; research data on wages rates, contracts, organization, and membership; field representatives' correspondence; and arbitration and grievance files.

These records were essentially collated for IUE Secretary-Treasurer Albin Hartnett's use and include his memoranda to IUE President James B. Carey touching on conference board activities and the status of negotiations. Also, Hartnett's correspondence with various corporate presidents and labor relations managers are contained in these files. Other principal correspondents include the various Conference Board Chairmen: E.J. Kraft and John Callahan (GE); Michael Fitzpatrick and Robert Nellis (Westinghouse); Charles Holley and Eileen Dooley (Sylvania). The bulk of the memoranda received by Hartnett was generated by Rodger Coyne (Organization Director and Administrative Assistant), Joseph Swire (Health and Pension Director), David Lasser (Research Director), Les Finnegan (Carey's Administrative Assistant), and Benjamin Sigal and Bert Diamond of the IUE Legal Department. Collectively, their correspondence and memoranda touch upon virtually all phases of the union's collective bargaining experience. Significant subjects range from the union's concern with eliminating geographical wage differentials and negotiating national master agreements to employment security issues and attempts to win management approval of a guaranteed annual wage plan. Refinement of IUE health, pension and insurance contract provisions is also a prominent theme.

This series contains some duplicate Conference Board proceedings, minutes and reports found in other RG-I Subgroups. A significant overlap of printed material is contained in the IUE Conference Board & Negotiations subgroup. However, Hartnett's Conference Board Files survived in their original order and provide a better chronology of the union's negotiating activities for the years 1951-1958. Hartnett's Conference Board files also supplement incomplete portions of IUE the Conference Board & Negotiations subgroup for certain years. Particularly noteworthy is the coverage given to major strikes such as the Westinghouse Chain Strike of 1955- 1956, the strike by IUE Local 744 at Sylvania's Shawnee, Oklahoma plant in 1952, and the 1958 recognition strike by Sunbeam Corporation employees in Puerto Rico. Reports on the Shawnee strike filed by Field Representative Charles Miles provide in depth analysis of strike conditions and issues. There are also extensive arbitration and grievance files (Step-Four National Level) involving IUE Local 608 (Huntington, WV) and Sylvania for the period 1951-1955.
