The file consists of lists of U.F.A. Locals photocopied from the 1915 and 1916 annual reports of the U.F.A.; list of old U.F.A. Locals (ca. 1960-1966) arranged by sub-district, with names and addresses of their secretaries; names and addresses of delegates and directors; and a printout (1965) listing the Locals in alphabetical order.
Locals of the U.F.A. were grouped into sub-districts which elected delegates. The delegates elected a director from each district of the U.F.A. They also attended the annual conference of the U.F.A Central Co-operative Association. This structure remained in place after the reorganization of the U.F.A. in 1948-1949, but ceased to exist upon the winding up of U.F.A. Central Co-op in 1966.
File consists of a series of bulletins containing advice to U.F.A. locals, numbered 1A to 15A. Titles of the bulletins are: "Should non-farmers be admitted to membership?"; "Incorporation of co-operative association"; "A program of work for locals"; "Why it is just as important for farm women to organize as for men"; "Farm women must organize - what are you doing to help?"; "Is your local getting the young men?"; "Incorporation of telephone company"; "Duties of directors; District associations"; "The value of the picnic"; "Community halls"; "Incorporation of Locals for the purpose of building and holding a hall"; "Organizing a chautauqua"; "Disputes in Locals"; "Suggestions for Locals interested in co-operative associations".
