United Auto Workers Local 9 was chartered as an American Federation of Labor local in 1933, servicing workers at the Bendix Products Corporation in South Bend, Indiana. After a disagreement with the AFL, the local joined the UAW in 1935, participating in the auto industry's first sit-down strike the following year. Local 9 records document its organization, factional struggles with the AFL as well as the company union, Bendix Employees Association, and general operations.
