Subseries 11.3. National Cleaning Contractors, Inc., 1956-1988, About 800 items (1.2 linear feet)

This series has legal documents, contract price adjustments, log books, and correspondence. Correspondence, affidavits, memorandums, counterclaims, exhibits, depositions, and other legal documents were principally from a lawsuit. The dispute stemmed from the 1979 termination of the 1974 contract between National Cleaning Contractors, Inc. and Uris 380 Madison Corporation. It involved the vacation monies due to employees at the date of contract termination, window cleaning services, and other related topics. The contract price adjustments provide specific financial data used in the negotiations of wage increases, vacation/sick time, credits, taxes, and benefits. These files also have information about government regulations, Realty Advisory Board agreements, and the impact of the equal pay for women lawsuit. In the log books, 1985-1988, there are daily entries of personnel in/out for day, totals of rubbish collected, and notes to supervisor on special activities or problems encountered during the day.

Arrangement is alphabetical, then chronological

Subseries 11.4. Financial Records, 1952-1997, About 2,100 items (3.08 linear feet)

The financial records are comprised of financial reports, tax documents, commission files, escalation records, office administration accounts, and supporting materials. These documents offer fiscal information on several Uris business endeavors, including 300 Park Avenue, 380 Madison Avenue, 485 Lexington Avenue, and 750 Third Avenue. Occasionally, the records contain figures for the Uris Brothers Foundation and family member trusts. Audits, balance sheets, budgets, collection statements, and weekly reports demonstrate the general performance of these ventures. Several files contain publications, forms, instructions, and correspondence for federal, state, and city taxes. There are also tentative assessment valuations and applications for reductions for Real Estate taxes. The commission records for various tenants have agreements, bills, and correspondence with brokerage firms. Calculation worksheets, correspondence, and sample lease clauses detail how escalations for electricity, labor, and real estate taxes were determined and then passed on to the tenants. The rest of the financial records describe the costs associated with office administration and professional services shared by different corporate entities. Inclusive office operating expenses and bank accounts are presented in memorandums, reimbursement records, lists, and forms. Additional correspondence, agreements, and accounting worksheets calculate the fees spent on attorneys, accountants, insurance, bank accounts, and tenant management.
