Abstract: The Civil Service Technical Guild (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Local 375) was organized in 1937. It represents engineers, architects, chemists, and technical inspectors employed by the City of New York; employees of various City departments are organized into separate chapters, each with its own officers. The Guild has fought against "farming out" of city contracts to private firms, has won expanded benefits for its members, has opposed political patronage in hiring and has supported reform of the City's Civil Service examination and job classification systems. This comprehensive collection of union records was donated by former Guild presidents, Philip Brueck, Alexander Lurkis, Joseph Collins and Louis Albano, as well as by individual Guild members.
