Metal Mine Workers' Union strike bulletins

Repository:University of Montana, Mansfield Library, Archives and Special Collections
Summary:The Metal Mine Workers' Union developed shortly after a mine fire in Butte, Montana that killed 168 miners in June 1917. The destruction of Butte's once powerful mining union in 1914 left miners unable to negotiate with the operating companies for better pay and safer working conditions and the organization of the new union intended to recitfy the situation. This collection includes several of the Metal Mine Workers' Union's "Strike Bulletins" that helped to inform union members on developments and gain support for their cause.
