Today in Labor History

Oct. 22, 1934
Bank robber Charles Arthur “Pretty Boy” Floyd was killed by FBI agents near East Liverpool, Ohio.

"They reverted back to their last rejected proposal and made little change," said Dittes' letter. He said the union negotiators "could not be more disappointed" in GM's position… CNN
