The workers of NYU go on strike!

Members of Local 810-steel, metals, alloys & hardware fabricators, warehousemen, carpenters, painters, electricians, engineers and plumbers-of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters walk off their jobs to protest low wages. The strike becomes heated as outside companies are prevented from delivering food, fuel and other needed supplies to the university and vandals attack buildings around campus.
