The Nation

April 15, 1986

Leaders of Hormel's striking meatpackers were freed in Austin, Minn., after posting $5,000 bail on charges stemming from last Friday's violent demonstration. They then attended a union hearing on whether the local should be punished for defying its parent union. Jim Guyette, president of Local P-9 of the United Food and Commercial Workers union, and Ray Rogers, the local's chief strategist in the eight-month-old strike, were charged with helping to organize the protest action, in which 17 people were arrested and eight police officers hurt slightly.
