Today in Labor History

Apr. 6, 1905
Teamsters in Chicago began a sympathy strike in support of locked-out Montgomery Ward & Co. workers who were on strike to protest the company’s use of nonunion subcontractors. When other businesses rallied to the company’s defense, the dispute spread quickly. Workers battled strikebreakers, police, and scabs for 105 days; 21 people died.
