Artistic Woodwork Company Limited

This sub-series documents the strike of about 150 workers at the Artistic Woodwork Company Limited, a plant in Toronto, Ontario that manufactured frames. The strike occurred in 1973 after negotiations broke down between the company and Local 570 of the Canadian Textile and Chemical Union (CTCU). The strike lasted about thirteen weeks. Workers faced police brutality and mass arrests, which led to several convictions, fines, and jail time. A total of four files document the arbitration, the strike, and police response. Articles, press releases, and photographs detail the strike and police response.
