  3. 3. 4Visit for more details about this year’s Northwest Folklife Festival5Cultural Focus:Washingtonworks Cultural Focus:WashingtonworksWashington State has always been ahotbed of labor activity. In the early1900s, the timber industry broughtwealth to the Northwest, and timberworkers began to band together toform unions and go after benefitsthe better economy could provide.Many joined the Industrial Workersof the World (IWW), a radical labororganization whose aim was to “put thesupervision of industry in the hands ofthose that do the work.” People calledmembers of the IWW “Wobblies,” andthe Wobblies supported a new tacticcalled the “strike,” where workerswalked off the job when their requestswere denied.The influence of the Wobblies reachedits peak in 1919. World War I hadended, and Seattle shipyard workerswere expecting a pay raise to make upfor years of strict governmental wagecontrols. They did not get their raise. Soin February 1919, shipyard workers madeinternational headlines when they led theSeattle General Strike. To show solidaritywith the shipyard workers, most of thecity’s 110 local unions took part. In all,more than 65,000 people participated—almost a quarter of the workforce. Thestrike lasted three days and garneredworldwide headlines. The issues centeredon workplace rights and the importanceof maintaining the unions. Though itwas unsuccessful in getting the raise, theSeattle General Strike is recognized asone of the most extreme labor actions inAmerican history.Other unions flourished in the decadesfollowing as the importance of tradeincreased in the region. The workerswho first drove teams of horses, thentrucks, to deliver goods organized as theTeamsters. The longshoremen and dockworkers organized as the InternationalLongshoremen and Workers Union,the ILWU. World War II furtherexpanded Washington’s economy withshipbuilding and airplane construction.But with all the union building, therewas also segregation. ThroughoutWashington’s history, people of colorhave faced many barriers in theworkplace. Labor unions excludedthem, and employers gave them themost disagreeable jobs. Many workersof color formed their own unions:Filipinos in Alaskan canneries, AfricanAmerican tradespeople on constructionsites of Seattle, and Latinos in westernWashington vineyards. Those civil rightsvictories set national precedents andserved as models for unions in otherparts of the United States.Women also experienced discriminationat work, and they fought back. In1936, Elsie Parrish, an underpaidfemale employee in Wenatchee, wona Supreme Court case that establishedminimum wage laws for women. Later,efforts in the Northwest were at theforefront of the movement for payequity in the 1970s and 1980s.With changes to the Northwest’seconomy, working people and unionmembers have continued to takethe lead in promoting equality andwell-being. In 1999, the WashingtonState Labor Council, AFL-CIO, led thelabor movement protests against theWorld Trade Organization (WTO)in opposing trade policies thatbenefited multinational corporationsat the expense of workers and theenvironment. That event amplified theglobal call for fair trade policies andmade international headlines, just likethe 1919 General Strike. Shortly afterthe WTO protest, Boeing engineersparticipated in the largest white-collarstrike in United States history.Labor unions continue to be animportant part of Washington life.There are unions in the building tradesand the service industry, in educationand in the public sector.

Northwest Folklife will be producing short video documentaries as part of the Washington Works program.Work. It’s what we all do every day . . .and sometimes it feels like it consumes us.But work also gives us our identity, andthe kinds of work people do gives rise toinspiration in the form of art, music, andculture. In the words of poet and folksingerCharlie King, “Our life is more than ourwork, and our work is more than our job.”The Washington State Labor Council,AFL-CIO, and its coalition partners believethat “work is more than a job.” For the second year in a row, theentire month of May has been dedicated to the celebration of workthrough MayWorks, a four-week-long series of art exhibits, musicalperformances, film competitions, lectures and parades that celebratesthe culture of work from the last century through today.MayWorks is dedicated to honoring the struggles of the past whileinspiring those who are struggling right now. It gives voice to workersthrough music, art, books, and poetry—through the celebrationof the culture of working people.The Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO, is proud to be involvedin Washington Works events at the 2013 Northwest Folklife Festival asthe finale to the MayWorks celebration.

The nicknamecame from a song by that namewritten in 1942. There were “Rosies”all over the country workingin factories that manufacturedmunitions and war supplies. In thePacific Northwest, Rosie the Riveterscould be found at Todd Shipyardsand Kaiser Shipyards building ships,Indian Island making submarine nets,Fort Lewis working as mechanics, andat many Boeing plants throughoutthe region constructing airplanes. Formost of the Rosies, their jobs endedwhen the war did—when the menreturned. But the Rosies marked aturning point in labor history: theywere women who successfully heldjobs that, until then, only men hadheld. Rosies opened the door forwomen to work in the trades—in construction, manufacturing,and transportation.Six years ago, Washington Womenin Trades (WWIT) embarked on aproject to interview and photographall of the Rosies they could locatein the state in order to create acalendar that commemorated theirwork. Since WWIT was foundedby and for women working in thetrades, it made sense to recognizethe women in the region who werethe foremothers of the moderntradeswomen. The WWIT membersdiscovered that the project went farbeyond what they had anticipated.Each Rosie’s story is compelling; eachgoes beyond building airplanes orwelding ships. They are stories thatspan a century of living.Most Rosies were just teenagerswhen they hired on. Many had neverleft home. They were risk-takerswho rode crowded trains across thecountry with empty pockets andpaper bags full of lunch, seekingadventure and decent paychecks.They lived in boarding houses, theytrained and they worked. Theyslogged through exhaustive hours,split shifts, interminable bus andferry rides, and sexual and racialoppression. And seventy years agothey paved the way for otherwomen to follow.Since 2008, WWIT has beenproducing a calendar that featuresWashington State Rosies. Everyyear it gets harder and harderto find “calendar girls”--thesewomen are national treasures with,unfortunately, an expiration date.The Washington Women in Tradesare proud to introduce you to someof the most important womenin labor in the region.Washington Women in Trades isa non-profit organization whosemission is to improve women’seconomic equity and self-sufficiencythrough access and success in high-wage, high-skilled careers in theconstruction, manufacturing andtransportation sector.Josie Dunn (right), with unknown woman.

Journey for Justice captures the frequentlyoverlooked story of APA workers in this regionthrough a photographic narrative, historicaltimeline and portraits of contemporary APAworkers.This exhibit sends a powerful messageby recalling the Pacific Northwest region’stroubled past of discrimination against APAworkers and the efforts of solidarity by theIWW and ILWU against racism.This exhibitunderscores the point that, for APA laborcommunities, the journey for justice continues.Men Along the Shoreand the Legacy of 1934The International Longshore Worker’s Union(ILWU) was one of the unions in solidarity withAPA workers in the 1920s.Through photographs,graphics and newspapers, this historical exhibitby the Longshore Division of the ILWU chroniclesthe story of how longshoremen, consideredlittle more than transients at the time, stood upand made history.The Pacific Coast MaritimeStrike and the subsequent San Francisco GeneralStrike are two of the most significant events inthe labor history of both San Francisco and theUnited States.The exhibit’s chronicling of thepast provides a mirror of events occurring with workers of today.Voices from theTidelands: A portraitof geoduck farmers fromSouth Puget SoundThe exhibit by independent folklorist ElaineVradenburgh provides a glimpse into theexperience of geoduck farming in the SouthPuget Sound from the perspectives of a few localgrowers.Through stories and photographs, theexhibit explores how shellfish farmers develop apersonal connection with both the tidelands andthe community of people who engage in thistradition through their daily work on the Sound.Using Art to Awaken:Posters about Labor andGlobalization issuesSelected works by students enrolled in the “Labor, Globalization and Art” class at theUniversity of Washington,Tacoma, under thedirection of Dr. Beverly Naidus.Images of Labor andSocial Justice: The Artof Richard V. CorrellRichard V. (Dick) Correll (1904-1990) was oneof the leading masters of printmaking in theWest. For most of his life he earned a livingas a commercial artist in the book publishingand advertising fields. But he is best knownfor the powerful black-and-white linoleumcuts, etchings, and woodblock prints that heproduced while working on his own time.Correll’s themes ranged widely: fromlandscapes, agricultural scenes, and harbors and ships to animals and music and dance. Most of his work reflected his lifelong concern with political and social issues.This exhibit features selections from several core areas of Correll’s recently donated collection,housed at the Labor Archives of Washington, University of Washington Libraries SpecialCollections.The entire collection includes images of labor, social justice, civil rights, anti-warthemes, work he did for the Great Depression-era Federal Art Project, and his work for theprogressive Depression-era newspaper the Voice of Action.Cargo Loading in the 1950s, Richard V.
