Factual footage related to Jay Strike; tape numbers are NHF-assigned; copy also exists in Kellman, Peter/Jay Strike Collection under accession 1190; excerpt from label on box: At a time of soaring profits for the U.S. pulp and paper industry, the world's largest paper company, International Paper (IP), launched an attack against its unionized workers. Workers in Jay, Maine fought back with the first strike at the the mill since 1921. IP used the courts, the press, the state police and more than a thousand scabs from around the country to break the strike. But the opposite happened. The strike grew into a community-wide movement for control over the mill, the environment and the town itself.
