Scope and Contents of the Records

Grievance case records, 1958-1967, arranged by company, and comprised principally of correspondence and transcripts of testimony, constitute the bulk of these records and illuminate the grievance process as well as disputes in labor-management relations. A jurisdictional agreement and National Labor Relations Board material concerning representational elections constitute the small portion of the collection related to organizing.


Historical Note

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters dates to 1903. Originally chartered as a freight haulers local in the 1930s, Local 728, the second Teamsters local in Georgia, eventually absorbed the slightly older Local 450 and Local 891, a construction local. From the early-1950s on, Local 728 thrived, increasing in membership from 900 to over 8000 by 1965, under the leadership of President R. C. Cook and Secretary-Treasurer Weldon Mathis.
