Gerry Meister joined the San Francisco Federation of Teachers (SFFT) Local 61 in 1963 and became a Building Rep in George Washington High School where she remained until retirement in 2001. During her time with the SFFT, she participated heavily in activism and the organization of several major strikes during the late 1960s and 1970s. Gerry played a role in the bargaining wars until the two unions merged November 6, 1989 to create the United Educators of San Francisco. The Meister’s papers are comprised primarily of records detailing two decades worth of union activity including flyers, surveys, meeting minutes, correspondence and other documents relevant to the on-going events.
