On This Day in 1944

Two ammunition ships explode at Port Chicago, Calif., killing 322, including 202 African-Americans assigned by the Navy to handle explosives. It was the worst home-front disaster of World War II. The resulting refusal of 258 African-Americans to return to the dangerous work underpinned the trial and conviction of 50 of the men in what is called the Port Chicago Mutiny.

Cumberland Teamsters end strike at Potomac Farms Dairy
Posted On: Dec 07, 2012


Nov. 19, 2012 | Local 453 dairy workers ended their strike at Galliker's/Potomac Farms Dairy in Cumberland, Md., after they re-voted Saturday, September 17 and accepted the company's final offer. The new 4-year agreement provides wage increases and language improvements. Local 453 and its dairy members send out a huge thanks to all who showed their support and made donations to the strikers: the Teamsters and other members of the labor community, local businesses and concerned citizens. Background on the strike here. (Local 453 is a member local in Teamsters Joint Council 62, as is Local 355.) Pictured left to right are LU 453 dairy workers Jeremy Van Meter, Tom Fair, Tom Trimble, Terry Whitacre, Casey Hardman, and Jimmy Dickens.
