May 16, 1934 Minneapolis General Drivers and Helpers Union Local 574 of the Teamsters


http://nhlabornews.com/2015/05/may-16-1934/



When employers refuse to recognize their union, members of the Minneapolis General Drivers and Helpers Union Local 574 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters go on strike, bringing trucking operations in the city to a halt. Despite a concerted and violent effort by employers, the police, and military, the strike ended successfully and was a turning point in Minneapolis labor history.
