The match workers at the Universal Match plant in Hudson, New York were first organized in 1946 as Federal Labor Union No. 24122. Federal Labor Unions were unions chartered and administered directly by the AFL (and afterwards the AFL-CIO) in trades that otherwise would not have been organized. In 1971 the local voted to affiliate with IUE over the Textile Workers Union of America (whose organizing drive was run by the Hudson Valley Area Joint Board) and became IUE Local 379. In 1981 Swedish Match bought Universal Match Corporation, and by 1989 the firm had closed its Hudson plant, marking the end of Local 379.

The collection contains minutes, 1946-1987; state contracts, 1946-1987; state by-laws, 1962-1982; and sample constitutions and contracts from other match workers' unions, 1947-1965.

The collection is organized alphabetically. There are no series.

All items in this manuscript group were donated to the University Libraries, M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives, by IUE Local 379, Match Workers on March 6, 1990.
