  • Description

    Titles read: "SAN FRANCISCO STRIKE".

    San Francisco, United States of America.

    Several shots of hundreds of railroad wagons standing on tracks. Commentator explains the union members of a warehouse company have gone on strike after workers were sacked for refusing to unload a wagon that was packed by non-union workers. Men mill about the entrance to the Butler Brothers building.

    Women union-members in smart, military (or majorette) style uniforms stand in line and salute before leading a demonstration march along the streets. Men follow, carrying placards with slogans such as 'Anxious To Work But We Can't Get In' and 'Low Wages, Long Hours, The Open Shop - Mean More On Relief - Half As Many On The Job'.
