This subseries contains material from all stages of the strikes, from proposal to planning to strike to resolution. Most of the strikes were in response to failed contract negotiations between Local 1-2 and ConEd, but some of the material documents Local 1-2 striking in solidarity with other unions, including the Communications Workers of America in 1989 and the Utility Workers Union of America, Locals 375 and 381 in 1998. This material includes Local 1-2 Bargaining Bulletins, notices, and posters communicating the position of the Local. Material regarding the planning of strikes includes picket duty lists, schedules, and other planning documents, as well as correspondence between officials from the Local and the National, ConEd officials, and politicians. Other materials include newspaper clippings and VHS cassettes with news reports on the strikes; photographs of demonstrations and rallies; and buttons documenting political parties and positions in regards to the strikes. There are three photographs from a strike in the 1990s which could not be positively dated and are filed at the end of the material.
Materials added to the collection in 2017 include additional photos, flyers, and a scrapbook related to the 1998 Local 381 Strike. They also contain videos of press coverage of demonstrations demonstration against Con-Edison and in support of the Indian Point Utility Workers Union (UAUW, Local 1-2), and a small assortment of bargaining agreements and bylaws.
