"In 1964 the CMIUA celebrated their 100th anniversary, but the union was on the decline....The Cigar Maker's Official Journal was discontinued in 1972. By 1974 the total membership had shrunk to approximately 2,500 and the union decided to affiliate with the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Workers Union." - from http://tinyurl.com/brlk3yu
