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

‘It’s Over.’ Amazon Labor Union is Broken and Broke
Updated On: Apr 03, 2024
Apr. 3, 2024 | ORGANIZING | The Amazon Labor Union (ALU), which made headlines around the world for becoming the first union to unionize an Amazon facility in the United States, has zero members, is besieged by infighting, and is “broke.” “The union right now is broke, zero money," Arthur Schultz, a pro-bono labor lawyer representing ALU opponents to founder Chris Smalls told Bloomberg. Indeed, a review of ALU’s 2023 financial disclosures filed with the U.S. Department of Labor and posted on Monday—known as LM2 forms—reveals that the union has zero members, and spent $67,083 more than it took in. Without a contract, ALU is unable to forcibly collect union dues from Amazon’s workers and. As donations have dwindled, the union is left financially vulnerable. Labor Union News
