1916 - The Shingle Weavers’ Union
The Shingle Weavers’ Union went on strike when the mill owners were unwilling to reinstate a higher wage scale. The strike became violent after some mill owners brought in strikebreakers. Hostilities increased when the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) — better known as the Wobblies — joined the labor dispute.
This labor tension led to a city dock shoot-out on November 5 known as the Everett Massacre. At least seven people were killed.
