On This Day in 1941
Animators working for Walt Disney began what was to become a successful five-week strike for recognition of their union, the Screen Cartoonists’ Guild. The animated feature Dumbo was being created at the time and, according to Wikipedia, a number of strikers are caricatured in the feature as clowns who go to “hit the big boss for a raise”.

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.
