1967 Union Rally at The Times

"The Los Angeles Times Has Labor Problems In Their Pressrooms"
read the signs worn by former pressmen.

Archives given to our Local contained this photo along with a treasure trove of documents from the 1960's and the history between the company and the pressroom employees
Union Activity from that era.

This photo is a testament to the company's decades old and antiquated position of union busting, and the employees quest for fairness and equality.
I hope to have all these documents reviewed by the Teamsters Historical Department for proper preservation.
