-Strikes which occurred in city?s such as Winnipeg, Canada & Seattle,

Washington outcome should have been taken in consideration by the


-The Police officers should have made sure all acting parties and other

unions were definitely supporting them during negotiations.

-The other officers who took on the jobs after the firing of the unioned

officers should have settled for anything less than what was benefited

to the previous officers.

-There could have been better bargaining solutions.

-Governor Coolidge was more or less out for political gain than the

settlement of peace and prosperity in Boston.

truly organized labor union.

-This is referred to as the granddaddy of all lessons to be learned about
