A wildcat strike took place in San Francisco on September 11th. The striking workers are affiliated with the Iron Workers Union. Local 377 of the Iron Workers Union struck against San Francisco Bay Area building contractors. The Ironworkers were upset that the union leadership had singed a deal with the contractors that did not give them much of anything. The contract gave the workers benefits with only a sixty-cent rise spread out over the period of a year while prices in the area were climbing.
