80th Anniversary of 1934
Minneapolis Teamsters Strikes

2014 marks the 80th anniversary the famous

Organizers plan a commemoration of the anniversary. Connect with them on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Remember1934

Organizers also are seeking descendants of the participants of the 1934 strikes. Click here for more information and a
