Scope and Contents Note

Originally in boxes labeled "Trabajo," the Christian Socialist Labor Movements Collection is an artificial collection or "vertical file" of documents and publications relating to the Christian Socialist Labor Movements of the 1960s and early 1970s. The collection has a little something from almost every country in the region, though quantity for each country varies. In Guatemala, organization meant rural coops. The other end of the spectrum is the international organization CLASC (Confederación Latino Americana de Sindicalistas Cristianos). CLASC is particularly well documented, with a number of position papers, educational materials, and the proceedings from its fourth (Caracas, 1962) and fifth (Panama 1966) converences.

CLASC, MOSAN (el Movimiento Sindical Autonomo de Nicaragua), and two Venezuelan organizations, Frente de Trabajadores Copeyanos and the Instituto Nacional de Estudios Sociales have their own folders. Other materials are organized by country. In addition, there are 10 periodical titles that are unique to UT and some with no cataloged holdings in OCLC Worldcat.
