San Francisco Waterfront Labor History Walk
With Lawrence Shoup and Peter O’Driscoll
There are many stories to be told about labor struggles in San Francisco. This story is about the maritime industry from 1835 until the burning of the blue book in 1934.
Also, labor historian Larry Shoup will talk about the history of the 1901 transportation workers strike, which included the Teamsters, and was smashed by the San Francisco police. This strike, in part, led to the formation of the San Francisco Union Labor Party, which in 1905, swept the election and took control of the city.
