[San Francisco]: Ben Franklin Press, 1921. Broadside, 11 x 8.5 inches. Backed on linen. Minor soiling and wear. Very good. Item #471

Broadside advertising seven articles agreed to between the California Transfer and Storage Association and the local teamsters’ union, including details of wage rates, hours, and working conditions. Article I makes clear that the Association will employ no one who is not a member of the local Brotherhood. Nine hours constitute a days work with an hour for lunch. The rate for drivers is around $6 a day, with overtime payable at $1 an hour. Wage rates for transfer drivers, furniture drivers, and piano movers are all delineated -- piano movers make $7 a day, and no piano is to be moved by fewer than two men, three if stairs are involved. A nice glimpse into the rights fought for by labor unions during the tumultuous first part of the 20th century. We locate a single institutional copy, at UC Berkeley.
