Abstract:

The collection contains copies of correspondence, news clippings, drafts and published reports and articles, flyers, voting cards, and other materials, arranged chronologically and according to subject matter in 11 folders. The perceived interference of Catholic church leaders in the Pittsburgh labor movement under the guise of anticommunism was Newell's chief focus and bone of contention in compiling these materials. From his position as Business Agent of UE Local 601, Newell had opposed the Church's involvement in union politics, the more so as the communist label had been used against him. Folders 1-3 primarily reflect the factional conflicts within UE Local 601, between 1940-1942. Folders 4-6 and 8 deal with the Association of Catholic Trade Unionists, who Newell viewed as fomenting a schism within the United Electrical Workers Union. Folder 7 focuses on a struggle between rightwing and leftwing unionists within Aluminum Workers Local No. 2 in New Kensington, 1947-1950. Folder 9 contains an interesting postmortem on the 1950 East Pittsburgh Westinghouse election which was lost by the UE largely over the communist issue. Folder 10 contains materials relative to accusations against Newell in the mid-1950s, when he and other UE leaders were summoned before the Massachusetts Special Commission on Communism and Subversive Activities.
