On This Day in 1907
At 10:20 am., explosions occurred at the No. 6 and No. 8 mines at Monongah, West Virginia. The explosions ripped through the mines at 10:28 a.m., causing the earth to shake as far as eight miles away, shattering buildings and pavements, hurling people and horses violently to the ground, and knocking streetcars off the rails. Three-hundred and sixty-two men and boys died. It remains the worst mine disaster in U.S. history. Over 3,200 miners were killed on the job in U.S. mines in 1907 because mining companies persistently disregarded recognized safety practices.

Local voter registration drive underway
Posted On: Aug 31, 2012


Aug. 2, 2012 | Efforts are under way at Teamster locals and Joint Councils nationwide to register voters and increase participation in this year's election. It is especially important for all of us to be voters this fall because opponents of labor are still mounting an all-out war on us. During the month of August we'll be visiting your shop where you'll have the opportunity to not only register to vote, but also sign up for DRIVE and Maryland Teamsters PAC. The schedule for our larger shops is here. If your shop isn't on the list, contact your business agent at 410-566-5700 for schedule and more information.
