The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) primarily represents dock workers on the West Coast of the United States. The union was established in 1937 and the Los Angeles Chapter, Local 13, was established shortly thereafter. The collection documents the establishment and development of the local as well as many of the goals and achievements of unionism on the Pacific Coast. Topics of interest include labor/management relations, labor conditions on the waterfront, the sudden effects of mechanization on the longshore labor force, and the day-to-day administration of this longshore union.
