“Union Histories and Union Events did an incredible job with our 100th Anniversary. The intricate details they found with their research were nothing short of fascinating -- there is no way we could facilitate so much research, nor published it into a book without their professional services. The publication of the History book resonated so well with our members and, more importantly, our retirees. Robyn did an amazing job with the event, and her aggressive bargaining helped offset so many costs. She and her staff took care of so many details, from the most significant items all the way down to the napkin selection. Everything was spot on, on time and more than we expected. I highly recommend Union Histories and Union Events to anyone hosting an event of this nature; it’s what made the difference for our great local.”

“Union Histories did an outstanding job capturing the tradition of Local 456’s first 100 years because not only did they travel to our Hall and interview everyone from apprentices to retirees, they also visited local libraries and investigated the archives at our International Headquarters.
