Rare. History of the Calgary Teamsters, primarily for the years 1942 to 1955. They were originally chartered by organized teamsters (actual teamsters) in 1910 as Local 528. Over the years they came to represent a large number of dairy workers and because of a lack of appreciation for the specific issues faced by dairy workers in the union a new charter was sought and granted in 1942. This was the Teamsters Local 987.

Between 1942 and the spring of 1955 detailed information is given on the yearly goings on: organizing, strikes, contract negotiations, Christmas parties, leadership, membership, conventions, meetings, etc. The last four pages provide tables of statistics for the various industries represented, including average hours and days per week worked, wages, number of vacations, number of statutory holidays, comparing a specific given year in the 1940's with 1955. Industries here include: Dairy, Creamery, Grocery Warehouse, Canning (Lethbridge), Trucking, Hardware Warehouse, Ice, Cartage, Hardware (Lethbridge), and Cold Storage Warehouse Industries.
