DIRECTORY OF LABOR ORGANIZATIONS 

IN MONTANA 

Cooperation of labor representatives with offices of the state 
employment service division of this commission makes possible 
the issuance of this directory of key officials in labor unions and 
related organizations in Montana. 

Distribution is made as a public service to principal officers 
of labor unions, employer organizations, libraries, public officials, 
the press and radio, and on request to any individual. 

Employment service and unemployment insurance facilities 
of the commission are dedicated to all elements of the public — 
union members, non-union workers, employers, rural and urban 
residents, and individuals — on a basis of equality and impartiality 
and as a matter of right under the laws of state and nation.
