President of the Los Angeles Railway Company Samuel Moody Haskins, sitting holding a document, and Vice President P. B. Harris, to his left, met with officials and employees' representatives to discuss the railway strike.
In November of 1934, members of the Amalgamated Association of Street and Electric Railway Employees confronted the Los Angeles Railway Corporation to contract with their union in support of wage increases ad to operate under union rules. A strike followed when the union was challenged and railway operations were halted or slowed down on a number of occasions.
A similar photograph taken on the same occasion appears with the article, "Negotiation Pleas Fail," Los Angeles Times, 28 Nov 1934: 1.
