The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) is a labor union which primarily represents dock workers on the West Coast of the United States, and was established in 1937. The Los Angeles Chapter, Local 13, was established shortly thereafter. The collection documents the establishment, development, goals, and achievements of unionism on the Pacific Coast, including 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.
