ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

On March 6, 1910 the employees of the International Paper Company mill at Corinth, N.Y. walked off the job at the end of the afternoon tour in protest against the firing of one of the men and the strike spread to the mills in Glens Falls, Ft. Edward and Ticonderoga. "While this was the immediate cause of the strike, the most important issue was undoubtedly the recognition of the union. A long strike in 1908 had resulted in a contract with the Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Workers Union, although the strike had originated with the Papermakers. Under this contract a number of grievances had developed, the most important of them relating to Sunday work, wages and a rumor that the company planned to return to a 2 tour schedule rather than 3. It appeared that some one in the plant was reporting union activities to the New York Office and men were being fired because they joined the union.
