Administrative History

Back to table of contents

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.
