Today in Labor History

May 25, 1936
The notorious 11-month Remington Rand strike begins. The strike spawned the "Mohawk Valley (N.Y.) formula," described by investigators as a corporate plan to discredit union leaders, frighten the public with the threat of violence, employ thugs to beat up strikers, and other tactics. The National Labor Relations Board termed the formula "a battle plan for industrial war".

Corporate Greed: Killing Middle-Class America
Updated On: Feb 08, 2018
Feb. 8, 2018 | ECONOMY | This past summer, striking Charter/Spectrum worker Eddie Rogan climbed onto the Mets dugout towards the end of a game at Citi Field and unfurled an IBEW Local 3 banner – for the Long Island father of three, this modest act of civil disobedience time at rating awareness about the plight of the working people was like “screaming into a canyon.” “I’ve got a great marriage and great kids, so I’m extremely lucky there,” Rogan tells LaborPress. “The pain that you feel is that you’ve been with the company for 32 years; the company’s been around for 40 years and there’s never been a labor dispute. Management and the union have always gotten along; the main concern was the customer. But this new company rolls in with new ideas; they want to reinvent the wheel; change everything around and all hell breaks loose. It’s the way the county’s going — corporate greed is basically taking over. It’s killing middle-class America. It’s destroying blue collar workers. And I’m not sure when it’s going to change.”… Labor Press
