Gerechtigkeit (Justice)

Fifty Years of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union Membership Newspaper

Justice was the weekly journal published by the International Ladies' Garment Workers’ Union (ILGWU). ILGWU, founded in 1900, was one of the largest labor unions in the US and one of the first with a primarily female membership. At its peak, it had 450,000 members. In 1995, ILGWU merged with the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union to form the Union of Needletrades, Industrial and Textile Employees (UNITE). This collection, presented in partnership with the Kheel Center for Labor-Management Documentation and Archives at Cornell University, includes scanned copies of the Justice journal published between 1919 and 1969.

This collection was made possible with the support of Abby Joseph Cohen and David M. Cohen.
