Flint's Local 599 Forced To Sell Union Hall 5-20-2011

It was once the largest local union in the world, but due to shrinking membership, UAW Local 599 is being forced to sell its union hall.
Now it's making sure its history is preserved. On Friday, members took on the task of moving their archives to the University of Michigan-Flint.
Local 599's archive collection includes meeting minutes, newspapers, photographs and other records dating from 1937 to 2010.
They will be available for research at the Genesee Historical Collections Center at the U of M-Flint campus.
The archives will have to be organized before being made public. Segments of it should be available within six months.
