Scope and content
Striking foundrymen gathered at the Atlas Foundry and Machine Co. to picket as their negotiators met in Portland, trying to reach an agreement with a group of foundries located in Oregon, Washington, and California. “The strikers are members of Washington State Local 158 of the Molders and Allied Workers union.” They have been on strike for six weeks.
Striking workers hold up an effigy wearing a hardhat and holding a signs reading, "SCAB" and "Reward for the capture of any SCAB or truck inside foundry." Other signs read, "United we stand, divided we fall," and "On Strike/International Molders Allied Workers Union/Local 158 AFL CIO."
