An appeal from the International Longshoremen's Association to members of the Teamsters union not to cross picket lines during the Cannery Workers' strike of 1937. In the wake of the longshoremen's strike in the Bay Area in 1934, ILA leader Harry Bridges embarked on his "inland march" attempting to organize warehouse workers in solidarity with the longshoremen. Out of this effort, the ILWU was founded in 1937. Bridges and Teamster head Dave Beck were bitter rivals. Here the ILA appeals directly to the rank and file " . . . not to allow themselves to be used as strike breakers against their Union Brothers . . . "
