Scope and Content of the Records

From the Collection:

The Records, 1941-1974, of the Tennessee Valley Trades and Labor Council (TVLTC), comprise correspondence, committee files, grievances, and documents pertaining to matters brought before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEO). The bulk of the correspondence is between the TVTLC and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). Files of joint committees (Central Joint Cooperative Committee, Joint Classification Committee, and Joint Wage Data Committee), indicate the extensive cooperation between the TVTLC and TVA. Some of the grievance and EEO material concerns charges of racial discrimination. Such allegations were filed against TVA in 1969 by the NAACP on behalf of black employees of the Allen Steam Plant in Memphis, and by the Black Vietnam Veterans in Muscle Shoals, Alabama in 1972. However, EEO investigations found no discrimination by TVA.
