Information on the officers, organizers and chartering dates of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania labor unions is widely dispersed.  The Databank is an attempt to unite and integrate this scattered information.  At present, the Databank contains information on more than 500 local and regional labor organizations.  Rosters of the Presidents of the Pittsburgh Musicians and Typographical unions, officers lists of the Pittsburgh and Washington, Pennsylvania Bricklayers unions, charter dates of Western Pennsylvania Steelworkers and Electrical Workers locals and certification dates of Service Employees union chapters - to name only a few - have so far been entered.  Information about minute books and union newspapers held by the Archives Service Center at the University of Pittsburgh is also included.
