||United Telegraph Workers Records
||The United Telegraph Workers, known until 1968 as the Commercial Telegraphers Union
of America, emerged from a series of struggles between smaller unions of private and
postal telegraph workers. Pitted against a single dominant employer, Western Union,
and beset by technological change in the industry, the union declined in numbers after
World War II. In 1986 it merged with the Communications Workers of America. The collection
includes records of predecessor and rival unions, correspondence, bargaining files,
bulletins, convention records, legal files, photographs, charters, and badges.
