The Besieged U.S. Labor Movement / Labor Taking It on the Chin like It Hasn't since 1920s
Serrin, William, THE JOURNAL RECORD
NEW YORK - Six thousand flight attendants strike Trans World Airlines. The strike is broken by hiring new workers, and 4,400 attendants lose their jobs with little complaint from other unionists.
The American Telephone and Telegraph Co. is struck by 150,000 communications workers, but service continues with little disruption, with supervisors filling in and new workers hired to replace strikers.
Fifteen hundred meatpackers strike Geo. A. Hormel & Co. in Austin, Minn. The parent union, infuriated by tactics, places the local in trusteeship, asking workers to renounce the strike.
How long has it been since things looked so dismal for unions?
