On This Day in 1937:

Ford Motor Co. security guards attack union organizers and supporters attempting to distribute literature outside the plant in Dearborn, Mich., in an event that was to become known as the “Battle of the Overpass.” The guards tried to destroy any photos showing the attack, but some survived—and inspired the Pulitzer committee to establish a prize for photography.

Sydnor Recognized for 5,000 Hours Safe Driving
Posted On: Apr 29, 2011

   Local 355 member and Professional Transportation, Inc. driver Carlton Sydnor takes his employer's motto "The Right Way is the Safe Way" very seriously. Sydnor, who recently marked his third year with PTI, was recognized by top management officials this week for successfully meeting the requirements of the company's safe-driver program and driving 5,000 hours without incident.

   A transportation company specializing in providing quality, reliable and safe crew transport services for the railroad industry, PTI trains all its drivers in a variety of extensive courses designed to assure client safety. The safe driving award is the second Syndor has received from the company.

   Pictured above (L-R): Sydnor was presented his certificate of achievement and other awards at the Local Union Hall by PTI Human Resources Director Steven M. Greulich, Vice President Steve McClellan, and Mike Morin, Director of Operations. Local Business Agent Marcus Smith attended the presentation.
