The Nation

October 10, 1985

A union longshoreman was struck and killed in Baltimore by a police car during a violent demonstration by the International Longshoremen's Assn. protesting the use of non-union labor. Negotiations between the union and owners of Baltimore Launch & Marine Services Inc., which had been using non-union labor, continued. Longshoremen claimed their jobs were threatened because Baltimore Launch was using non-union workers to unload cement from a Cypriot freighter.
