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

Michigan Repeals So-Called ‘Right to Work’ Law
Posted On: Feb 15, 2024
Feb. 15, 2024 | MOBILIZING | Originally acted in 2012 by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, the law allowed union workers to opt out of paying dues but still receive union representation. The state is the first state in 58 years to repeal a so-called right-to-work law. Now, all members of a union can be required to pay for the cost of representation at the bargaining table. Ron Bieber, the President of Michigan AFL-CIO, said this repeal would make for stronger unions and, in turn, a stronger economy. “If we want to make Michigan a place where people want to come and raise a family and build their careers for the long haul, it is critical that we have got these strong workplace protections,“ he said. Beiber said starting Tuesday, workers in Michigan have leveled the field and taken back rights he says they should have had all along. WILX 10
