Teamsters Strike Safeway 1963-74
Teamster union Locals 246, 639 and 730 staged a number of strikes against Safeway over the years.

The bulk of the images in this album are from the 1974 strike, although also pictured are 1963 and 1969 strikes.

Warehouse employees represented by Teamsters Local 730 went on strike against Safeway November 6-10 1974 after negotiations over a new contract broke down. A new agreement by the 300 member bargaining unit was ratified by a 30-1 margin.

The Safeway distribution center was located at 1501 Cabin Branch Road in Landover, MD. Safeway has since replaced this warehouse with a newer facility in on nearby Columbia Park Road and a facility in Upper Marlboro. Teamsters Local 730 continues to represent Safeway warehouse employees.
