George Meany Memorial AFL-CIO Archive

The George Meany Memorial AFL-CIO Archive is the largest single donation to the University Libraries and complements other labor-related collections in our libraries. The AFL-CIO Archive consists of approximately 40 million documents and other archival material that help researchers better understand pivotal social movements in this country, including those to gain rights for women, children and minorities.

The newly acquired collections from the AFL-CIO Archive are not yet represented in ArchivesUM. All archival materials that were previously open for research at the George Meany Memorial AFL-CIO Archive are available. To find out more about these and related labor collections in Special Collections, please view Labor History Research Guide or contact us.

Note: Some collections are stored off-site and will take at least two days to retrieve; many records are restricted or closed.
