Scope and Content

Throughout its history, the NBOP/IBOP has negotiated for contracts with three main manufacturing groups. These groups were the Sanitary Potters Association (SPA), an organization of manufacturers producing sanitary ware such as sinks, toilet bowls, and lavatories; the United States Potters Association (USPA), a more generalized organization of pottery manufacturers and the American Radiator and Standard Sanitary Corporation (ARSS). In addition, an annual convention was held each summer during which the unions's general policies for the following year were decided by local union delegates. The materials in this segment of the collection document the NBOP/IBOP Annual Conventions and the periodic Wage/Policy Conferences with the three manufacturing groups mentioned above.

The materials have been arranged in four main categories. The first is NBOP/IBOP Annual Conventions; the second, SPA/USPA Wage/Policy Conferences; the third, ARSS WAge/Policy Conferences; and the fourth, special conferences. Materials have been arranged sequentially within each of these major categories, beginning with the earliest convention or conference for which materials are available. The materials in the first category of the segment of the IBPAW collection cover forty-one NBOP/IBOP Annual Conventions dating from 1903 to 1967. Although materials exist for only eleven conventions before 1933, there are materials for every consecutive convention from 1934 to 1967. The materials in the second category document the periodic SPA/USPA Wage/Policy Conferences from 1912 to 1970. Most of the Wage/Policy materials before 1941 consist of proceedings in bound volumes. Chinaware Conferences, which appear at the end of this section, have been so placed because the china manufacturers with whom the chinaware locals negotiated were USPA members. Materials pertaining to ARSS Wage/Policy Conferences in the third category reveal two types of related conferences--the NBOP/IBOP Sanitary Conferences, at which local union sanitary conferees decided on sanitary policies each January; and the ARSS/IBOP Conference, usually held in May at which time sanitary contracts were negotiated with ARSS representatives. The special conference materials in the fourth category are comparatively sparse. With no exceptions, all materials relating to a particular special conference have been placed in one folder.

Within each section of this segment of the IBOP collection, materials have been arranged sequentially. Each sequential entry is followed by ordered topical entries. The most frequently used entries are correspondence followed by minutes, proceedings, resolutions, propositions, agreements, reports, delegate and committee lists, credentials, receipts, hotel brochures and flyers, and miscellaneous convention/conference materials. Since the materials in each category pertain to the convention or conference under whose dated heading the category appears, dates are generally not provided except when correspondence or minutes are involved. All correspondence relating to a particular convention or conference has been placed with the materials of that convention or conference. Since the NBOP/IBOP planned conferences and conferences a year and sometimes two years in advance, the correspondence dates of one convention or conference may logically overlap with the correspondence dates of another. Researchers interested in conferences or conventions should also be sure to examine the next series of records for related and similar materials on conventions.
