Doris Prosser and Don Behmer were among 100 men and women who staged dance demonstrations at Union Die Casting Co., while others kept the picket lines going. Roving carloads of pickets staged "dancing" demonstrations againt the Anderson Die Casting Co. and the Union Die Casting Co. Demonstrators were members of the Western Mechanics Union Local 700, Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers International, unaffiliated. Unionists struck the two plants in a dispute arising from failure to write a new contract to their advantage. Photo dated: June 29, 1951.
