On This Day in 1915
Joe Hill, IWW organizer and songwriter was executed by a Utah firing squad after being convicted of murder on trumped-up charges. While in prison, Hill sent a telegram to IWW leader Big Bill Haywood: “Goodbye Bill. I die like a true blue rebel. Don’t waste any time in mourning. Organize!” In a later telegram, he added, “Could you arrange to have my body hauled to the state line to be buried? I don’t want to be found dead in Utah. His ashes were supposedly sprinkled in every state of the union, except Utah. However, it is said that the IWW still keeps a small vial of some of his remaining ashes.

Allen Foods members in attendance at last month’s contract ratification meeting unanimously approved a new collective bargaining agreement providing a 90-cent per hour wage increase over the contract's three-year term; improves medical; and provides retroactive pay back to January 2019. Members can also participate in the Teamster Members Pension Plan.

A successor contract with First Transit Baltimore MTA was ratified in June by members. Highlights of the three-year agreement include significant wage increases; gains in paid time off (PTO); the addition of a healthcare HMO option in the second year of the agreement that offers lower deductibles; and retroactivity back to January 2019.

Members employed at Hertz/BWI approved in June a three-year contract providing wage increases; raises start rates for all classifications; creates an overnight shift differential, and increases the afternoon shift differential; and maintains Health and Welfare. In addition, the contract provides gains in paid time off for all members.

A new contract covering drivers at Acme Paper is in place. The agreement provides wage increases in each year of the five-year term; maintains 54 employees at the top-tier pay rate; increases company contributions to the 401(k) each year and the company match in the second through fifth year; and adds sick leave at 40 hours per contract year in compliance with Maryland law.
