Sugar Strike 1958

Hosted and narrated by then-president of the ILWU, Anthony "Tony" Rania, this film takes an in-depth look at the sugar strike of 1958 in Hawaiʻi. Using a member made movie called "Sugar Strike 1958," we get to see what the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) did for its members including collective bargaining with the company throughout the strike and what was accepted. During the strike, the ILWU assisted the strikers by setting up kitchens, busing for school children, and social dances in the community.
