The public is encouraged to join in a labor history program reflecting on the Portland newspapers strike on Monday, November 28th, 7:00 P.M., IBEW Local 48 Hall, 15937 NE Airport Way, prior to the business of the regular NOLC delegates’ meeting.  

November is Labor History Month in Oregon and celebrated annually by the Northwest Oregon Labor Council.  This year’s 30-minute program briefly covers the 1959-65 Portland newspaper strike, its impact on other U.S. newspapers, and some of the ongoing effects on the local labor movement.   

Those who recall know there remain mysterious, unsolved crimes attributed to labor, but…questions remain unresolved.  Learn more about this pivotal event in our local history and hear voices of the past through narration and witness the past through projected photographs.
