A daily newspaper owned by the Seattle Central Labor Council, the Union Record was the voice of labor in Seattle. Selling up to 60,000 copies in two eight-page editions published every day except Saturday, it competed effectively against the city's three other dailies. The Union Record played a key role in the events of early 1919, covering the deliberations of Central Labor Council and member unions, explaining the shipyard strike that began on January 21, and the planning for the general strike that followed on February 6. Here are high resolution pdf copies of each issue of the newspaper published in February. Click here for February issues of the Union Record.
