Oct. 7, 1946: Hollywood’s "Battle of the Mirrors." Picketing members of the Conference of Studio Unions disrupted an outdoor shoot by holding up large reflectors that filled camera lenses with blinding sunlight. Members of the competing IATSE union retaliated by using the reflectors to shoot sunlight back across the street. The battle went on all day, writes Tom Sito in Drawing the Line.

What This Teamsters' Story Says About America
Posted On: May 22, 2013

May 22, 2013 | WAR ON WORKERS | In 2010, after his Illinois printing company was bought by a private equate firm, Marcus Hedger was illegally fired for his union activities as a shop steward for the Graphic Communications Conference of Teamsters. Last September, the full National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) — two Democrats and one Republican at the time — unanimously ruled he should be rehired with back pay. What happened? Nothing, except to Marcus. The company appealed the ruling in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and it has been able to avoid reinstating Marcus because his case is on hold over a radical challenge to NLRB board appointments. Marcus lost his home and is working at a job that pays one-third of what he was earning before. Continue reading here and then call your senators toll free at 1-888-264-6154 and tell them to confirm the NLRB nominations now.
