On This Day in 1936:

The notorious 11-month Remington Rand strike begins. The strike spawned the "Mohawk Valley (N.Y.) formula," described by investigators as a corporate plan to discredit union leaders, frighten the public with the threat of violence, employ thugs to beat up strikers, and other tactics. The National Labor Relations Board termed the formula "a battle plan for industrial war".

March/April 2011  

Brothers and Sisters:

   Well, it looks like Spring is almost here, with the first calendar day being March 20. Don’t forget to set your clocks forward on March 13!
   The Teamsters Local 355 Spring Golf Tournament is scheduled for April 16 at Queenstown Harbor (Lakes Course), Queenstown, MD. Entry fee of $60 and application is due in by April 8th.  You can get more information here, or you can call the Union Hall.
   Sister Nona Kratzen-Hott is putting together a 12-night Southern Caribbean cruise leaving Baltimore on February 27, 2012. You can go to the Royal Caribbean website and check out the itinerary, or call Nona at 410-679-8057 and she will give you all the information about who to contact. Remember, while we are sharing this information as a favor to Nona, the Retirees Club and Teamsters Local 355 are not endorsing this cruise.
   Don’t forget about our makeup bowling date on Monday, March 28th.
   Lesley Phillips, who handles the Local 355 website, requests that retirees contribute whatever Teamster items they may have that could have historical value (and that they're willing to part with). You can drop the items off at the Hall and mark them for her attention. Lesley will make sure the items are well taken care of and preserved for posterity's sake. While you’re at it, check out the website (www.Teamsters355.com). Suggestions for items of interest and information you would like to see on the site are always welcome.
   Please inform us about any member that is sick or who has passed away, so we can keep everyone up to date.           

Sick Members:  John Kirschke, Steve Glowacki, Frank Barnett, John Romm     

Deceased Members: Charlie Leake  

Please keep these members and their families in your thoughts and prayers.     

   The next meetings will be on March 17 and April 21 in the Sullivan Hall at Teamsters Local 355, 1030 S. Dukeland Street, Baltimore, MD.  Coffee and donuts are served at 9:30 a.m. The Executive Board meets at 10 a.m., and the general meeting begins at 11 a.m. A light lunch is served following the general meeting. Hope to see you there. Remember to bring another retiree with you.                                       

Fraternally,

Bob Eney,
President
