Today in Labor History
Today in labor history, June 13, 1917:  Professor and union organizer Israel Kugler is born.  In the 1960s, he led an 18-month long strike by faculty at St. John’s University and co-founded the Professional Staff Congress in 1972, a union of faculty at the City University of New York, which now represents more than 25,000 faculty and staff.  [Photo:  Kugler (third from the left) on a picket line at Baruch College, 1973.]
