    Lessons of the 1934 Minneapolis Teamsters' Strike

    Lessons of the 1934 Minneapolis Teamsters' Strike

    From May to August of 1934, Minneapolis was rocked by a strike that would forever change the course of US labor history. This was the strike of Teamsters Local 574, a union led by Trotskyists. Today, as the US working class regains its pulse after decades of lull in the class struggle, these events can provide us with many practical lessons for how labor can fight back and win through militant action. Steve Iverson of Boston Socialist Revolution presents on this topic. Intro music: "There is Power in a Union" (Version by Joe Glazer and Bill Friedland). "Bella Ciao" remix (Toasted Tomatoes from "lofi hip​-​hop beats to organise​/​seize means to").
