Name of creator
Division 107 of the Amalgamated Association of Street Railway and Motor Coach Employees of America was established in Hamilton, Ont. on 9 April 1899 and signed its first agreement with the Hamilton Street Railway Company in June 1900. In 1957 the union began to represent workers at Canada Coach Lines Ltd. as well. Employees of the Public Service Commission of Galt, Ontario (later re-named Cambridge, Ont.) were added in 1962. In 1964 the union's name was changed to the Amalgamated Transit Workers. Mississauga Transit system workers joined the local in 1970.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of the business records of the Union from its founding to 1979. This includes the labour agreements that precipitated the 1906 Strike.

Fonds was acquired in August 1979 from the Amalgamated Transit Workers.
The fonds has been arranged into the following series: minutes and other records; correspondence; labour negotiations; grievances; finances; seniority and history; constitution and bylaws, newsletters and news clippings, photographs and engraving plates.
