Material in this series was generated from 1980 through 1994. Materials include memo, notes, correspondence (much from labor unions and corporations), reports, testimonies from hearings, press clippings, and journal articles. Files on significant labor disputes include the 1987 to 1988 International Paper Company strike, which deal with permanent replacement workers and the striking United Paperworkers International Union and the Brotherhood of Firemen and Oilers. Other subjects include federal employees; job training programs; occupational health and safety; unions; pension plans for workers, especially federal employees; and railroads. Files on railroad labor disputes, particularly the Guilford Transportation Industries, strike are in the Railroad series. Government agencies and committees featured in this series include the Labor Department, the National Labor Relations Board, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and the Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources. Significant unions featured include the AFL-CIO and United Auto Workers. Significant legislation found in these files includes the Davis-Bacon Act, which regulates wages; the Job Training Partnership Act; the Workplace Fairness Act, which prohibits the hiring of permanent replacement workers during a strike; and the Hatch Act, which regulates the political activities of federal employees. The Governmental Affairs series contains additional information on federal employees and the Hatch Act.
