UAW Region 1A Records

Accession Number: 
7 linear feet, (5 MB, 8 OS)

Region 1A was formed in 1942 and included the west side of Detroit, as well as Monroe,
Washtenaw and a portion of Oakland County. Some of the material in this collection also
relates to Region 1, which covered the east side of Detroit and the remainder of Oakland
County. These two regions, during the period covered by this collection, had more members than any other UAW region and were administered by two co-directors. Later they were each divided into two separate regions.

The papers in this collection reflect the work of the regional Political Action Committee (PAC) and Education Department to advance and promote legislation and social programs
beneficial to the membership.
