On This Day in 1974
A four-day strike by 2,000 postal workers at the New Jersey Bulk and Foreign Mail Center in Jersey City began on this date. The “Battle of the Bulk” was caused by postal management’s unilateral changes in workers’ hours and working conditions. The wildcat strike was led by a group of young workers who identified themselves as “The Outlaws”. A federal judge ruled in the union’s favor, directing management to settle the issue through binding arbitration.
