History of United Truck Drivers, Local Industrial Union 936

An affiliate of the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO), United Truck Drivers, Helpers, and Warehousemen, Local Industrial Union 936, was organized in Roanoke, Virginia. On September 6, 1939, the union signed an agreement with the Red Line trucking company.

Those drivers went on strike against Red Line on September 7, 1939. This first jurisdictional dispute in Roanoke between CIO and AFL affiliates was settled when the CIO revoked the charter of Local Industrial Union 936 and Red Line signed a closed contract with Teamsters Local 171.
