Scope and Content of the Records

From the Collection:

The Records, 1954-1988, of the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union, Local 1716 of Rome, Georgia, are comprised of correspondence, arbitration and grievances, union organizing and contract negotiation materials, union elections results, and minutes regarding safety regulations. The bulk of the records relate to the contractual relationships of ACTWU Local 1716, TWUA Local 689, and other unions throughout the Southeast, primarily Georgia and the Carolinas. Principal correspondent is Local 1716 President Bobby Fox. Of particular interest is correspondence on the topic of workers and union leaders relating to the TWUA Local 689.

Series I consists of records mainly from ACTWU Local 1716, 1976-1988, but also prior grievances from TWUA Local 689, 1962-1977, leading up to the eventual combining of the TWUA into the ACWA in the fall of 1976. Series II is comprised solely of TWUA Local 689 records, 1954-1977. Series III documents correspondence with other unions. The records include photographs of unidentified union workers from Local 689 and mini cassettes from Local 1716. These items are filed at the end of Series III.
