The records of Plumbers and Pipefitters, Local 50, were transferred to the Center for Archival Collections on April 16, 1976, by Stephen P. Gietschier, Co-Director of the Ohio Labor History Project, and Paul D. Yon, Associate Director of the Center for Archival Collections, with the cooperation of David M. LaPlante, Financial Secretary for Local 50. The material documents the years 1907-1970, with the bulk of the records covering the period 1956-1970. Records of Local 357--merged with Local 50 in 1969--are complete from 1941-1969.
The collection consists of the minutes of Local 50's and Local 357's regular and executive board meetings, Joint Apprenticeship Committee meetings, and Board of Trustees (Insurance and Pension Plan) meetings. The collection also includes correspondence, charges filed and minutes of trials of members, financial ledgers, cash sheets, monthly financial reports, labor relations agreements, and convention materials.
