Series 13


Membership records. – 1953-1988. – 1.5 m of textual records. – This series consists of membership records compiled or accumulated by District 18. Maintenance of membership records was traditionally the responsibility of the Financial Secretaries of Local Unions. Some of these records can be found in Series 19. Complete directories of all members of District 18 have survived only for the period 1969-1974. In April 1954 responsibility for collection of dues directly from employers (“dues check-off”) shifted from the Local Unions to District 18, and these dues check-off records comprise nearly-exhaustive lists of active members. Some records of dues payments by unemployed and retired members have also survived. The dues check-off records have been sampled, by selecting records of the first remittances received each calendar year. -Comprehensive membership lists are arranged in approximate chronological order, followed by dues check-off records arranged in approximate chronological order. An inventory of early check-off records is in file M-8111-8. – RESTRICTIONS: To protect the privacy of Union members, access to some files is restricted to the members themselves, their bona fide direct descendants, and officers of the UMWA.

Files include members’ application forms, work histories, medical histories, correspondence, records of benefits payments, and sometimes photocopies of proof-of-age documents such as birth certificates, baptism certificates, marriage certificates, or immigration papers. – Files are arranged in subseries in alphabetical or numeric sequences according to the filing practices of the Welfare and Retirement Fund at the time. Files were closed (transferred from active use to inactive storage) following the deaths of the members. Occasionally additional information was added to files after their closure. Registers of benefits claims, arranged by type of benefits, then chronologically by the dates the files were opened, are at M-5889, files 2862-2864. Discontinued benefits card files, contain information on files closed due to death or forfeiture of Union membership and are located at M-5889, boxes 154-155. Files closed ca. 1965 and Files closed ca. 1979 are in alphabetical sequences located at M-5889, boxes 1a-132, files 1-2859. A file inventory of these records is located at M-5889-box 1. Files closed ca. 1980 are in numerical sequence at M-8111, boxes 7-19. An alphabetical card index to these records, 1969-ca. 1980, is located at M-8111-box 6. Beginning in 1980, files were usually closed in the year the Death Benefits were approved. Files closed in 1980, Files closed in 1981, Files closed in 1982, Files closed in 1983, Files closed in 1984, Files closed in 1986, and Files closed in 1987 are each filed in alphabetical order and are located at M-8111, boxes 21-42. An alphabetical card listing of these beneficiaries is at M-8111-box 20. Applications for death benefits 1966-1980 are in chronological order at M-8111-box 43. Other files in this series include a card file on District 18 members who were older than 45 in 1949; and a card file on mine workers who were injured on the job in Alberta during the period 1917-1926. TO SEARCH FOR A FILE ON AN INDIVIDUAL, RESEARCHERS ARE ADVISED TO FIRST CONSULT THE INVENTORY AND INDEXES at M-5889-box 1, M-8111-box 6, and M-8111-box 20.
