Scope and content
The series contains records pertaining to the AUCE Provincial and Local 1 and CUE committees. Record types include agendas, minutes, correspondence, newsletters and other material of the following committees: Provincial Affiliation Committee, Provincial Health and Safety Committee, and Local One Committees of: Working Conditions Committee, Communications Committee, Grievances Committee, Merger Committee, and Strike Committee, and CUE Communications committee.
Records found in the Strike and Contract Committee files document the contract negotiations undertaken by Local 1 of the A.U.C.E., some of which resulted in members striking while negotiations continued.
Health and Safety Committee records contain pertinent information to occupational safety legislation and workers' compensation.
Communications Committee records predominantly consist of newsletters of AUCE Local 1, including the Local 1 monthly newsletter, bulletins for special membership meetings, and, post- 1985, the CUE newsletter.
Grievances Committee records contain the records of union members who reported a grievance to the union.
While the AUCE began as an independent union, for several years it was debated whether to affiliate with a larger union, and which one. Various members opposed or supported these efforts, for different reasons, and the records of the Provincial Affiliation committee relate to these differences between independent and national/international unions.
In 1985 the A.U.C.E. Local 1 seceded from the AUCE provincial, and merged with the CUPE to become the CUPE Local 2950; this process is described in the Merger Committee records. The physical order in which all records were received has been maintained; original order has been re-constituted intellectually.
