Union is Power
This call to action was not published in a periodical, but rather distributed as a single-sheet broadside in and around Lowell, Massachusetts, during a strike in 1834. The factory workers were reacting to an unprecedented wage decrease of roughly 15 percent across the board. The goal was to have beleaguered workers sign a petition and essentially unionize on the spot and then to strike until the three resolutions on this page were met by the mill owners.For more information on this item, see the AAS Catalog.
