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

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) said inspections at Amazon warehouses in New York, Colorado, and Idaho found that workers faced a higher risk of lower back injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders. OSHA said the risk to workers resulted from frequently lifting heavy packages and working long hours to fulfill quotas. Reuters
