Organized Employers of the
Northwest Throw Down
Gauntlet and Fire First
Gun for Open Shop.
The International Longshoremen's
association of Seattle has sent out
the following pioclamation to all
wo' kers, soldiers and sailors.
The information contained in this
manifesto is of value to all workers
(:f the northwest:
Workers of Seattle:
The gauntlet has been thrown
dcown by the organized employers,
the first gun for the open shop in
Seattle and eventually the whole
country, was fired at the G. N.
docks and the 1. L. A. were selected
as the first victims. We realize that
we have the whole of organizedl
capital to fight, and it may be said
to the everlasting disgrace of the
I'. S. Railroad Administration of
ficials that they have taken the side
of the exploiters of labor so youi
workers will see the dastardl p.lot
to crush all organization of labor.
We submit these facts. The
Railroad Administration through
their 'spokesmlan, lMr. Gilmian, has
submitted some of the most de
grading propositions to us, s,ome that
would make the very worst of thel
old slave owners in the south turn
over in their graves with envy. For
instance, they say all workers must
line up at the gates.of the docks to
be picked over like a lot of cattle
whereas tile Longshoremten's union
has always maintained a work list
insuring justice and a square deal
to all workers.
We ask you workers what would
be more unfair, mnore tyrannical
than to have several hundreds, or
possible thousands of men standing
in front of a dock in all kinds of
weather, knowing that probably one
out of every twenty would get a
job, to say nothing of the time and
the money the workers would have
to expend under such a deplorable
Another point to show the fair
ness and the brand of democracy
that the employers and our U. S.
railroad officials believe in, our
business agents are not allowed to
visit our own members while at
work. These are some of the hellish
conditions they are trying to force
on us, knowing full well that no
self-respecting body of wot king men
will submit to them.
Therefore we say that the open
shop fight which was to have started
on April 1 has now begun and that
the employers have selected the
Longshoremen's union as their first
victims, therefore we say to our
lBrother Unionmen in Seattle, this is
your fight as well as ours?
The workers of Seattle are con
fronted with a crisis. The Chamber
of Commerce has decided on a plan
to destroy the unions of Seattle.
They are going to re-establish what
they term pre-war labor conditions.
This war is to be fought silently
and stealthily. The victimt is to be
choked to death slowly, and with
as little noise as possible. The gen
eral plan of operations is to strangle
the smaller unions of Seattle during
the coming summer one at a time,
and about the first of December,
declare a lock-out on all the Metal
Trades for ninety days. They figure
a ninety-day lock-out would make
labor listen to reason, not only ac
cept a reduction in wages, but, they
fondly hope, they will then be in
a position to impose the open shop
in the Metal Trades. The bosses,
acting on their decision, to squelch
all Organized Labor, have in doing
this, used good judgment, b4cause
in any time of emergency, when the
other unions need help, the Long
shoremen can stop all operations on
ten miles of water front, thereby
preventing the movement of steam
ers in and out of this port. With
thle Longshoremen stranded and
what would amount to slave con
dtons, re-establshed on the water
front, they will quietly begin to
knife the teamsters and truck
If you allow the exploiters to
crush the I. L. A., your turn comes
next. Therefore, if they persist in
thei~ftortst to cra tieB,it.may be
come neOCssary for us to call on all
the workers of Seattle to stand by
us as we stood by you in the recent
strike. Local I. L. A. 38-12 says
that if the open shop is going to
be forced on us, let us go down
fighting and not like a lot of servile
licked curs. The I. L. A. 38-12
has tried to be a progressive union;
any wage worker who is loyal to
his class is eligible to menmbership;
and we do not discriminate against
race, creed or color; and therefore
we want and expect the sullpqrt of
all workers algainst the colmbined
force of the exploitors who wouild
crush out the last vestge of Lberty
of the workers.
And so on and on, the Seatile
employers have set their faces in
the direction of the open shop which
to them would be a beautiful state
of affairs. Workers of Seattle,
arouse yourselves. You know what
it costs to live nowadays. If we
allow ourselves to be maneuvered
into a position where we will be
compelled to accept starvation
wages, we don't deo:erve the amlle of
Men. While the soldiers were sent
to Europe to mnake the world s5a e
for democracy, the profiteers were
busily engaged in taking advantage
of the government to squeeze out
all the traffic would bear. and then
when the war is over, they seek to
lower the standard of living for the
very soldiers who fought to mnake
the world a better place to live in.
Workers, we are sounding the
alarm, and as the first victim that
has been selected, frankly warn you
that in the very near future, you
will be called upon to stand by the
I. L. A., the same as we have stood
by you in the late strike.
Remlember, Blrothers, we are nort
asking for nmore money, we are not
even on strike, we are locked out
in the strictest sense of the word.
Remember, Protllers, we never
know when conditions will be such
that it will be necessary for us to
call upon each other for assistance.
Some organization had to be first.
The bosses evidently considered the
I. L. A. the most vulnerable point
of attack in their present union
smashing campaign. To say that we
are striking against the government
is entirely beside the point. No suchl
thing is being contemplated. The
officials controlling the U. S. Rail
road administration are going to
make the attempt to kill two birds
with one stone. The main idea, is
to co-operate with the Seattle
Chamber of Commerce in smashing
the unions in what has come to lbe
one of the strongest organized labor
towns in the United States. Their
next motive is to make it appear
that it is a bolshevik movement
against the government, but in re
ality, one of their ideas is to so dis
credit public ownership and control
of public utilities that the govern
ment, after spending hundreds of
millions of dollars fixing up their
old .bankrupt, decrepit railway sys
tems, which have been loaded with
tens of millions of watered stock,
that the government will gladly
hand them over to private control
once more, and the merry game of
commercial exploitation will go on
Workers, when you were called
upon to buy Liberty Bonds you litlle
realized that some of the money
you paid in was to be used for a
national union-smashing campaign.
Earnestly appealing for your co
operation and hearty support in the
very near future, we, the members
of the International Longshoremen's
association, beg to assure you of our
willingness to help any othiler or
ganization out any time it becomes
necessary for us to do so.
