On This Day in 1940

Woody Guthrie wrote “This Land Is Your Land” following a frigid trip—partially by hitchhiking, partially by rail—from California to Manhattan. The Great Depression was still raging. Guthrie had heard Kate Smith’s recording of “God Bless America” and resolved to himself: “We can’t just bless America, we’ve got to change it”.

(L-R) Robin Watkins, Bill Bowers, Tom Patro, John Trail, Joe Malone and Brad (PA Boss) Schmidt.

   Pressmen at the The Baltimore Sun got a visit yesterday from George Tedeschi (center), President of the Graphics Communications Conference (GCC) and a Teamsters Vice-President At-Large. Tedeschi spent nearly 5 hours at the plant in order to meet with members from both shifts. 

   Tedeschi gave members an update on the state of the newspaper industry, and more specifically, brought members up to speed on the status of The Sun's parent company, Tribune, which has been in bankruptcy since December 2008.

Local 355 represents 78 pressmen at the newspaper.
