  • Description
  • The Seattle General Strike was a joint effort by several local unions, including the IWW. 65,000 workers walked out of work from February 6, 1919 to February 11, 1919, in a protest against World War I wage controls. 39 Wobblies were arrested. Although the strikers succeeded in nationally publicizing their grievances, the strike was ultimately called off by senior union leaders.
