An Illustrated History of American Labor #15


Original Caption:

Cleveland -- As mounted police arrive on the scene to prevent trouble arising from a 3,000 man picket line, an unidentified striker tries to shield himself from the Park Drop Forge Co., Cleveland, Ohio, where CIO United Auto Workers Union members managed to prevent most non-strikers from entering the plant. (1954)
