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.

Drivers at Mid-Atlantic Baking approved in January a new contract that provides a 12% wage increase over the four-year term. Other gains include an increase in the company contribution to the 401(k) plans; additional paid time off for all members under the sick leave policy updated to comply with Maryland law; and improvements to company safety policies.

Negotiations for four new contracts are underway at Anne Arundel County on behalf of fire battalion chiefs, correction program specialists, deputy sheriffs, and park rangers.

Contract talks are ongoing at KraftHeinz, for pressmen and drivers at The Baltimore Sun; Holly Poultry; YRC Freight, USF Holland New Penn; and newly-organized service agents at DHL.

In organizing news, drivers at Arnold Packaging in Baltimore and graphic artists at Hood Printing in Randallstown recently voted to join Teamsters Local 355. A first contract was quickly achieved at Hood Printing that reflects the Teamster standard for wages, benefits, and grievance procedure. Negotiations for a first contract continue at Arnold Packaging.
