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

States Advance New ‘Captive Audience’ Bans Amid Court Challenges
Posted On: Mar 04, 2024
Mar. 4, 2024 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | Washington and a half dozen other blue states this year are considering banning mandatory meetings to talk workers out of unionizing, building on momentum from Minnesota and New York, which enacted such laws last year. Unions and worker advocates say the state legislation would prevent employers from using this type of mandatory meeting as part of union-busting efforts to scare workers away from labor organizing. But business groups, which have sued over measures enacted in Connecticut and Minnesota, argue the bans violate employers’ freedom of speech and are preempted by federal labor law. The surge of state captive audience proposals coincides with a similar effort at the federal level. National Labor Relations Board General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo has pressed her belief that employers’ use of mandatory meetings to counteract union drives is a violation of worker rights under federal labor law.
