the UC Berkeley Collections
Labor Organization Publications
find periodicals published by unions, search Pathfinder
using the name of the union as a corporate author. In addition to newspapers,
newsletters, magazines and journals published by individual unions,
there is a wealth of regional labor newspapers published by county central
labor councils and county building trades councils. Here are lists of
Regional Labor Newspapers, U.S.
Labor Newspapers (Outside California) and
International Labor Periodicals.
& Bylaws, Convention Proceedings, Officers Reports
and bylaws can be useful in tracing the history of individual unions,
the evolution of their structure and concerns. Convention proceedings
and officers' reports are generally the most widely distributed record
of the year-by-year activities and concerns of the unions. UC Berkeley
catalogs most of these as "serials"; to find them, search OskiCat
using the name of the union as corporate author and limit by "journal
titles." The Library also holds these major microform collections
of constitutions, bylaws and convention proceedings.
