Members of the Irish Transport and General Workers Union in Dublin, Ireland, go on strike for union recognition.  A concerted effort by hundreds of the city’s employers resulted in a lockout of over 20,000 workers.  For months, picketing workers and their Irish Citizen Army battled scabs and the police in what would become known as the Dublin Lockout.  [Photo:  ITGWU leader James Larkin.]
