Administrative history

On 8 January 1946 the Canadian Industrial Workers Union, Canadian Congress of Labour, Local 2, voted to dissolve itself and be reconstituted as the United Mine Workers of America, District 50, Canadian Chemical Division, Local 13083. An earlier vote in 1945 had failed to gain agreement. Members of the local were employed by Canadian Industries Ltd. (C-I-L), General Chemicals Division.

Custodial history

Scope and content
