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

Billionaires Use Courts to Target the Freedom to Join Unions
Posted On: Feb 13, 2024
Feb. 13, 2024 | UNIONS | The right to unionize, a cornerstone of worker rights and economic empowerment, faces an unprecedented assault through a multi-pronged legal attack orchestrated by corporations, conservative groups, and anti-union law firms. This coordinated effort, targeting the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) threatens to cripple worker organizing and dismantle decades of labor protections and industrial peace. At the forefront of this attack lies a direct challenge to the NLRB’s legitimacy. Elon Musk’s SpaceX, backed by the far-right Federalist Society, argues the Board is unconstitutional due to its structure and member removal process. This lawsuit, if successful, could cripple the agency’s ability to enforce labor laws and embolden anti-union tactics. Labor Lab
