SF Waterfront Labor History Walk 1835-1934
With Peter O’Driscoll (IBEW), Laurence Shoup (UAW-NWU)

There are many stories about labor struggles in San Francisco. The walk will focus on the maritime industry from 1835 until the burning of the blue book in 1934. Also, labor historian Larry Shoup will discuss the history of the 1901 transportation workers strike led by the Teamsters, which the San Francisco police attempted, but failed, to smash. After an over two-month long struggle, the workers emerged victorious, and the Union Labor Party won the election of 1901, taking control of the city. San Francisco was the first large city in the United States to have a union labor party in office.
