Hi Brothers & Sisters

During this period of history I was a good friend of Fred Hirsch & Jack Weintraub.  We decided that the International Brotherhood of Teamsters were up to no good.  First we organized to shut them down and get them out of your way it took time but we were successfull eventually and they gave up and went away. i was a member of Teamsters Local #85 in San Francisco at this time.

We marched and organized picketing at Safeway Stores on weekends.  I remember that sometimes we were a little more active on the picket line but our tactics scared many of Safeways clientle decided to go somewhere else to shop and that hurt there business badly.  I have many fond memories of those times and things seemed to end fairly well for the Union.
