Today in Labor History

Sept. 22, 1934
United Textile Workers strike committee orders strikers back to work after 22 days out, ending what was at that point the greatest single industrial conflict in the history of American organized labor. The strike involved some 400,000 workers in New England, the mid-Atlantic states and the South.

Carroll provides HVAC installation and repair services throughout the Baltimore area. Petro and Carroll are both owned by Star Gas.

A new three-year contract was ratified at Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, providing annual wage increases, maintenance of healthcare benefits with a new opt-out provision, an increase in the employer contribution to the 401(k), and an additional holiday.

Members at Terminal Corporation approved in June a new contract with a four-year term. The agreement provides wage and shift differential increases; maintenance to Health and Welfare; an increase in the life insurance benefit, the company pension and 401(k) contribution.
