This video tells the story of the pivotal 1934 Truckers' Strike in Minneapolis. The bloody struggle left four people dead and many more injured. It pitted the anti-union Citizens Alliance against the Teamsters fighting to organize Minnesota workers and raise the local wage rates. This conflict, together with others across the country, pressured the president and Congress to enact the National Labor Relations Act the following year. The NLRA became the basis for the nation's collective bargaining system.
