Meetup for 132nd Anniversary – Battle of Homestead Commemoration

On Saturday, July 6, 2024, from 2:00-5:00 p.m., the Battle of Homestead Foundation presents an in-person program marking the battle’s 132nd anniversary and discussing the strike’s buildup and aftermath to current issues involving local unionization efforts in healthcare, retail, agriculture, industry and public service.

The event takes place at the Pump House, 880 E. Waterfront Drive in Munhall. The program is free and open to the public. Picnic refreshments will be available, and attendees are welcome to contribute their own favorite foods and beverages.

“The 1892 steel strike was a defining event in America’s ongoing struggle to ensure workplace rights,” says Battle of Homestead Foundation president John Haer. “Observing the anniversary lets us reflect on the role of organized labor in fighting the extreme economic inequality endangering our nation in 2024.”
