Abstract:

Correspondence, telegrams, clippings, reports, speeches, legal agreements, broadsides, and other printed matter documenting the 1934 Minneapolis teamsters strike. The documents, selected by former Local 574 secretary-treasurer Farrell Dobbs from among his personal papers, give information on the history of Local 574, a Minneapolis teamsters affiliate, and the organizing events that led to the 1934 strikes. The majority of the documents concern the events during May-August, 1934, during which two tumultuous drivers' strikes were called by Local 574, that ended in death and injury and the imposition of martial law in Minneapolis.

The records contain information on Local 574's relations with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (which were often unfriendly), with the Minneapolis public, with other Minneapolis labor organizations, and with the employers and their public relations organization, the Citizens Alliance. The documents contain information on labor rallies and strike meetings; negotiations with the National Labor Relations Board and its regional units; police activities; strike violence and casualties; the imposition of martial law; and the conflict (in the strike's aftermath) with the national Teamster organization that led to Local 574's charter revocation (1935) and its later reinstatement (1936) under a new charter (Local 544). Correspondents include Dobbs, William S. Brown (Local 574 president), Daniel J. Tobin (Teamsters general president), Thomas L. Hughes (Teamsters general secretary-treasurer), and Floyd B. Olson (Minnesota governor).

Following the strike-related documents are three short sections dealing with the murder of two Local 544 officials (1937-1939), Dobbs' later work in organizing over-the-road truck drivers (1937-1939), and Local 544's continuing fight with Daniel Tobin over the control of Minneapolis drivers (1941).
