“I always enjoy reading Today's Labor History,” writes Ron Nicosia. “The notes and images often pique my interest in events and people, and remind me how much of this history I don't know! I noticed today (9/23) that the text on the United Labor Party and the image didn't match up. The UC reference concerns the United Labor Party founded in Chicago in 1886; the flyer is for a meeting held in 1877. This was the year of the great railroad strike, and in his book on the strike, Philip Foner does mention the founding of a United Labor Party in Pittsburgh, a key city in the strike, in August of 1877, which is confirmed by the location of the meeting in the flyer, Fourth and Branch Streets in the Sixth Ward.”
Near Duquesne University and UPMC Mercy, confirms George Meany Labor Archive Archive Specialist Alan Wierdak. Very sharp catch, thanks for the correction!
