Today in Labor History
Today in labor history, August 26, 1913:  Members of the Irish Transport and General Workers Union in Dublin, Ireland, go on strike for union recognition.  A concerted effort by hundreds of the city’s employers resulted in a lockout of over 20,000 workers.  For months, picketing workers and their Irish Citizen Army battled scabs and the police in what would become known as the Dublin Lockout.  [Photo:  ITGWU leader James Larkin.]

    One of my favorite statues in Dublin is the Larkin statue, commemorating this moment. Right on O’Connell Street.
