Scope and Content of the Records

The Records, 1961-1969, of AFL-CIO Region 6 (Georgia, Florida, Alabama) consist of correspondence, office memoranda and printed material maintained by the regional director's office in Atlanta. The bulk of the records are arranged chronologically by year for 1961-1967 and filed alphabetically within each yearly period. Records for the years 1968 and 1969 are included in this description but are housed separately as two distinct record groups. Principal concerns illuminated by the records are the region's organizing efforts, particularly the coordinated campaigns in Atlanta, 1964-1965, and Cullman (Ala.), 1966; the Georgia Organizing Conference, 1969; the grape boycott, 1969-1970; the strike against General Electric and the boycott of GE products, 1969; and the continous raiding activities of the Teamsters. Correspondents include region directors Charles Gillman and Oliver Singleton, AFL-CIO Director of Organization William Kircher, and George Craig, Alan Kistler, and J.W. Livingston.
