On This Day in 1835
2000 workers, many of whom are children, from 20 textile mills in Paterson, NJ, went on strike. They demanded 11 hour days (down from 13.5 hours). Employers refused to negotiate and broke the strike by declaring a reduction in work hours to twelve hours daily during the week and nine hours on Saturdays.

Stop the Presses! Leonard Lee Retires
Posted On: Apr 02, 2012

Mar. 6, 2012 | News that Baltimore Sun pressman Leonard Lee retired in February is big in of itself given that he worked at the Sun for 43 years and served as shop steward in recent years. But the reason he decided to retire one year earlier than he'd originally planned is what needs to be shared with his Teamster family at Local 355: When Lee learned several months ago that one of his coworkers would be laid off as part of the company's plan to reduce the staff, Lee decided to save his brother's job and leave now rather than later. Asked what he had planned for his early retirement, Lee said he looked forward to volunteering at his church. Lee's commitment and service to his coworkers was celebrated at our Baltimore membership meeting March 4.
