Description
Violators of court order restricting picketing, submit to peaceful arrest as they are escorted into the bus by police. Police also form a blockade as spectators congregate outside RKO Studio. In March of 1945, an estimated 10,500 CSU (Confederation of Studios Union) workers went on strike. They put pickets at all the studios. Several of the major studios, including RKO, were severely affected.
