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

Global Brewer AB InBev Clashes With Union Over Negotiations Claim
Posted On: Feb 16, 2024
Feb. 15, 2024 | COLLECTIVE BARGAINING | In a recent statement, beer giant Anheuser-Busch’s communications bosses insisted that the firm has been working to “secure a contract” that “recognizes and rewards” its employees “since the bargaining cycle started in September.” The workers’ union said those claims were inaccurate. Kara Deniz, Teamsters Assistant Director of Communications, responded: “Negotiations with us do not continue. The Teamsters are not in negotiations with Anheuser-Busch. We do not have any negotiation dates with this company.” The news follows around 5,000 AB InBev Teamsters lobbying for better pay and benefits, as well as job security, insisting that they are prepared to strike at AB InBev breweries in St. Louis, Los Angeles, California; Fairfield, California; Fort Collins, Colorado; Houston, Texas; Jacksonville, Florida; Cartersville, Georgia; Williamsburg, Virginia; Columbus, Ohio; Baldwinsville, New York; Newark, New Jersey; and Merrimack, New Hampshire.
