History

The Maine State Federated Labor Council was founded in 1904 as the Maine State Federation of Labor, a branch of the American Federation of Labor (AFL). Its purpose was to better the conditions of the labor force and to fight such problems as child labor, poor working conditions and exploitation of women in the work force. The Federation worked to bring about the passage of legislation to change the child labor laws, increasing the age at which children could be employed, as well as fighting for a reduction in hours in the work week, workmen’s compensation and retirement pensions. Later years saw campaigns for health insurance, factory safety, women’s suffrage, right-to-work and equal pay for equal work measures.

The Federation established its own newspaper, the Maine State Labor News, in 1932. In 1938 the AFL and the Maine State Federation saw the rise of a new rival, the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO). The CIO began organizing workers by industry rather than by craft and completed the organization of workers in the Maine textile industry by 1943, bringing many women into the labor movement.

Following the merger of the AFL and CIO at the national level in 1955, the Maine state chapters of both organizations merged in 1956, forming the Maine State Federated Labor Council, AFL-CIO. Benjamin Dorsky, who had served as president of the Maine State Federation of Labor, was elected president, serving in that position until 1979. The newly-named organization continued its efforts to pass right-to-work legislation, gain unemployment benefits for striking workers, effect workers’ compensation reforms and bring about better conditions for union members.

Scope and Content Note

The collection contains the business records of the Maine State Federation of Labor and its successor, the Maine State Federated Labor Council. The records begin about 1913 and end around 1971 and consist of both incoming and outgoing correspondence, financial records, records of conventions and of the newspaper, the Maine State Labor News. Both national and state projects and campaigns are represented in the collection, and subject areas include work programs, labor laws and legislation, strikes, workmen’s compensation and right-to-work campaigns, etc. Correspondents include prominent state and national labor leaders as well as Maine politicians such as Margaret Chase Smith, Edmund S. Muskie, William Hathaway and others.

The collection was arranged in chronological order upon its arrival at Fogler Library in the 1970s. Within each year, the files follow a similar arrangement beginning with correspondence  arranged as either incoming or outgoing, then chronologically. Correspondence of important people, businesses, organizations and government departments is often noted. AFL-CIO correspondence is found in this section as well, along with letters from labor leader George Meany, the Committee on Industrial Peace, the Committee on Political Education and others.

Also included in the collection are records concerning the organization’s newspaper, the Maine State Labor News. These records include correspondence, financial records, information about advertising, etc.  

Affiliated union material including that from local and state unions is found next and generally includes miscellaneous papers, reports and publications. Other records of the Council follow, including information about the organization’s conventions, meetings of the Executive Council and related papers. Financial and business records, especially expense reports, treasurer’s reports, bills and receipts, are found next in the collection.

Publications of various labor organizations and groups, as well as of the AFL-CIO can be found in the collection as well as pamphlets, newspaper clippings, etc.
