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

Likewise, when people hear about labor unions, they normally don’t think about fashion. Yet, the two are inextricably connected via one key link: working-class people….Labor unions are, of course, still in fashion, and it’s looking like they’re going to be in next season as well. When turning on the news or checking social media, it’s hard not to notice the increase of striking workers all around the country. Whether it’s SAG-AFTRA and the Writers Guild of America, Starbucks Workers United, the 340,000-strong UPS Teamsters doing practice pickets, or the 140,000 United Auto Workers hitting the picket line, it’s all of organized labor that is utilizing fashion to advance their goals. When looking at these striking workers, you’ll see that matching shirts, jackets, hats, and pins promoting their organization are front and center, and that’s on purpose… Peoples World
