Strike pay

Strike pay

The Seamen’s Union membership book of Auckland seaman James Wylie shows he received strike pay during October and November 1890, when New Zealand wharves were crippled by a widespread strike. During long strikes, unions try to support their members out of their own funds, and funds donated by other unions.
