Today in 1934
The Toledo (Ohio) Auto-Lite strike begins today with 6,000 workers demanding union recognition and higher pay. The strike is notable for a five-day running battle in late May between the strikers and 1,300 members of the Ohio National Guard. Known as the “Battle of Toledo,” the clash left two strikers dead and more than 200 injured. The two-month strike, a win for the workers’ union, is regarded by many labor historians as one of the nation’s three most important strikes. ~ Labor Tribune

US Maritime Union Sounds Alarm Over Global Shipping Standards
Updated On: Mar 29, 2024
Mar. 29, 2024 | CORPORATE PROFITS | A top labor union for maritime engineers has sounded the alarm against corporate profiteering in the wake of Tuesday’s cargo ship crash into the Francis Scott Key Bridge, claiming the industry is “probably the worst offender.” The Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association (Meba) warned of the dangers of growing vessels and shrinking crews – claiming that those from overseas are “not up to the standards” required in the US. “These types of issues can be averted when you have a highly trained crew and you have the resources for the crew to be able to operate,” Rexha said in an interview. “Between the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, and what’s happened recently with Boeing. Obviously, we’ve seen corporate greed at its worst and the maritime industry is actually probably the worst offender.” The Guardian
