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

Starbucks Union Seeks National Template of US Bargaining
Updated On: Mar 01, 2024
Mar. 1, 2024 | COORDINATED BARGAINING | Starbucks union representatives want to create a national template for labor contract negotiations with the coffee chain, according to union organizers - an idea a Starbucks spokeswoman said the company believes is "speculative." The union, Workers United, has organized nearly 400 stores out of the company's 9,700 U.S. locations since 2021, and is seeking to organize more. Starbucks so far has sought to negotiate only individual contracts store-by-store. The union has argued this is a delaying tactic… Beyond Starbucks, a national bargaining process would mark a significant milestone for nascent efforts to organize the service sector. U.S. News  Why this matters: Teamsters Warehouse Division Director Tom Erickson has been a vocal proponent of coordinated bargaining.
