Brown Bag explores 1967 strike
SYCAMORE – Fortunately, Sycamore has a history of good labor relationships between local industry and its employees. In 1967-68, however, a strike at Anaconda lasted for eight months.
At a Sycamore History Museum Brown Bag Lunch on Thursday, June 7, Rosemary Feurer, Ph.D., will explore the history of strikes in Illinois and how they impact the local community. Former Anaconda employees will also share their stories of the strike.
“The Anaconda strike was unique in that is lasted so long. This is a complex topic that we felt could not be addressed within the confines of our exhibit,” said Michelle Donahoe, executive director of the museum.
