Organizational Sketch

The Albany Allied Printing Trades Council was an organization of local unions involved in all aspects of the printing trade in Albany, New York. Council members came from the International Typographical Union, the International Printing Pressmen and Assistants' Union, the International Brotherhood of Bookbinders, the International Stereotypers and Electrotypers' Union, the International Photoengravers' Union, and the International Mailers' Union. The composition of the council included those local unions whose members were printers, bookbinders, stereotypers, electrotypers, photoengravers, and mailers. Each union was entitled to have three delegates as representatives on the Council. The Council oversaw use of the union label and worked for the common interests of the unions it represented. It did not work as a bargaining agent, but left those interests to affiliated unions.
