So You May Know

Los Angeles: Strike Committee Pharmacists; and Clerks' Division Warehouse Workers' Union No. 26, ILWU, CIO, n.d. (ca. 1938). Handbill leaflet, 6 x 9 in. Pencil notation in upper corner; folded twice; very good. Item #206927

Leaflet distributed by picketing workers on strike against Thrifty and Sontag drug stores under the auspices of the newly formed ILWU. Following the success of the longshoremen's strike of 1934 in San Francisco, union leader Harry Bridges embarked on what was known as his "inland march" to organize warehouse workers. The ILWU was formed in 1937, growing out of the earlier ILA. This leaflet takes aim at Bridges's rival, Teamster union leader Dave Beck, whom it described as being "to American Labor what Hitler is to Europe. His 'unions' are goon squads. . ."
