THIS MONTH IN HISTORY: JANUARY 1937
Is It a Fair Fight When You Can't Even Discuss the Possibility of Unions?
In January 1937, Republic Steel sent agents to follow Cleveland-based union organizer, Gerald Breads, who was distributing pro-union literature. They shadowed Breads all day, kidnapped him near a mill gate, and beat him viciously with blackjacks and the butt of a gun.
