UAW Local 22 Records

Accession Number: 
1 linear foot (1 SB)

UAW Local 22 began as an offshoot of Detroit’s historic UAW Local 174 in 1945, to accommodate the growth in 174’s membership. Since then, Local 22 is best known for representing auto workers at Detroit’s Clark Street Plant and later the Hamtramck Assembly Plant. It also represented workers at several other Metro-Detroit factories, with a membership surging to 10,000 workers for a time.

The UAW Local 22 Records are made up of publications, statistics on retirees, announcements on layoffs at auto factories, and more. Contract resolutions from the UAW-GM Department, documenting negotiations between the international union and auto company also represent a large portion of the records. Records from UAW Local 15, another Detroit-area local the branched off from Local 174, also reside in the collection.
