San Francisco Waterfront Labor History Walk | 2013 LaborFest | July 2-31
Join a San Francisco waterfront labor history walk with Lawrence Shoup and Peter O’Driscoll.
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.
Meet at 75 Folsom St. at the entrance of the Hills Brothers Coffee building.
