The contract established rules and regulations for freight industry employees. It also created uniform wages and working conditions for truck drivers, warehousemen and dockworkers throughout America.
This collection was created by the Central Conference of Teamsters. The Conference consisted of Local Unions and State Councils from the Midwestern United States. Many of the documents were created in Chicago, IL. Over time they were housed at Teamster headquarters in Washington, DC. In 2014, they were transferred to The George Washington University where they remain today.
