  • Description

    Work resumed quickly in some of the main West Coast U.S. ports on Sunday (10 October), as dock workers obeyed President Nixon's order for a temporary end to their 101-day strike. This film of the action in Los Angeles is from NBC news.

    President Nixon on Wednesday ordered an 80-day resumption, securing an injunction to force this under the Taft-Hartley law.

    Thousands of workers crowded the hiring halls in Los Angeles, but there was a slow start to work because time and servicing were needed to re-activate machinery. In San Francisco, about half of the workers did not answer the call back to work; many feel the injunction has weakened their bargaining power without solving their dispute.
