Name of creator
The Hamilton Pressman's and Assistants Union Local 176 was organized on November 5, 1904. Its history can be traced back to the parent company of the International Typographical Union which came to Canada in 1865, and its affiliate, the Toronto union which became Local 91 on May 23, 1866. In 1895 the local turned down a Montreal proposal for a district union. It told the Trades and Labour Council that if the Pressman were allowed to join, Local 91 would leave the parent union (which it did in July, although it came back in October after the ITU had arrived at an agreement with the Pressman). The International Printing Pressman's Union of North America began as an affiliate of the International Typographical Union and changed its name to International Printing Pressman's and Assistants Union in 1896.

The fonds consists of eight minute books, recording the meetings held by the union from 1904 to 1982.
