International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU). Local 17. Records
Collection Number: D-591
The collection, which documents warehouse organizing in the West Sacramento, California area, contains minutes, correspondence, administrative files, photographs, picket signs, and memorabilia. In 1935, the International Longshoremenâ€™s Association (ILA) established Local 38-118 to represent workers in the Sacramento area. Two years later, Pacific Coast ILA members voted to become independent from the ILA and formed the International Longshoremenâ€™s and Warehousemenâ€™s Union (ILWU). At that time, Local 38-118 became ILWU Local 17. In 2011, members affiliated with Local 150 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
