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 Carmakers Contend With Closure at Busiest US Auto Port
Posted On: Mar 27, 2024
Mar. 27, 2024 | GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN | The Baltimore bridge collapse has prompted carmakers to assess operations after the closure of the busiest U.S. auto port. Many do not expect major disruptions so far. In a dramatic scene, a cargo ship hit the Francis Scott Key Bridge in the early hours of Tuesday morning, causing it to crumple into the water almost immediately. The Port of Baltimore, the 11th largest port in the U.S. and its busiest for autos and light trucks, has been closed until further notice. Logistics companies immediately began rushing to make rearrangements to other East Coast ports to transit their imports and exports. …U.S. firms General Motors and Ford, and Japan’s Toyota, Nissan and Mitsubishi all said that they were evaluating the situation and would likely have to divert operations, but that they did not expect significant disruptions.
