Spring Reading Group: Teamster Rebellion

February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Join Spring’s Labour Caucus for a reading group and discussion of Farrell Dobbs’ classic book, “Teamster Rebellion.”

The book chronicles the 1934 union organizing and activity of Teamsters Local 574 in Minnesota, of which Dobbs was a key rank-and-file leader. In the face of fierce strikebreaking efforts, repression, and brutal police violence, the workers organized a strike that would go down as a watershed moment in labour history.

We will be meeting in two sessions over Zoom:

  • Sunday, January 14, 7pm ET / 4pm PT / 8pm AT (Chapters 1-6)
  • Sunday, February 4, 7pm ET / 4pm PT / 8pm AT (Chapters 6-13)

All are welcome! To register, click here. If you need a copy of the book or if you have any questions, please email info@springmag.ca.
