*1934 – the year of the strike*

*Wednesday, December 5 – 6:00 p.m.*

*79 Highland Avenue, Somerville*

In 1934, the labor movement in the United States was at a low ebb; the 
Knights of Labor and Industrial Workers of the World had been smashed 
earlier in the century, and the CIO had yet to make an appearance. But 
that year, four major strikes occurred that had an impact on the labor 
movement for years to come:


    *The Auto-Lite strike in Toledo, Ohio - Presented by Steve Kellerman


    *The San Francisco general strike - Presented by Marty Comack


    *The Minneapolis Teamsters strike - Presented by Bill Bumpus


    *The textile workers strike - Presented by Matthew Andrews

We'll review the history of these four strikes and discuss the lessons 
they may hold for today's labor movement.
