  • Description

    NO SCRIPT WITH THIS PACKAGE. Shows various pier scenes on the eve of the New York deck strike. 100 Ft. devneg silent film. Deckworkers from Maine to Texas went on strike at 5pm est today, rejecting a personal appeal from President Kennedy that a 90-day truce with the nation's shippers would be "in the national interest." The New York shipping association (NYSA) earlier had accepted Kennedy's proposal that the strike be suspended for 90 days while a presidential committee investigated automation and job security issues, the key stumbling blocks to a settlement of the dispute.

    Both Kennedy and Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz have declared that an east and gulf coast maritime strike could cripple the nations's shipping industry.
