Books [Communications--1st Report]
Here's a poem which refers to the famous whistle which started the stand up.
Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the worm that turned in less than a year
Of Akron, Detroit, Milwaukee, San Fran,
Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, yeah man!
And how “Minny” threw the rats out on their ear.
How the sound of the whistle's melodious note
Makes Postal Officials ready to quote;
Increases in salary, conditions more fair,
Written recognition for CIO everywhere
Just listen, be wise and take note.
And here's one that goes to the tune of Annie Doesn't Live Here Anymore.
Annie doesn't work here anymore.
Now she hates to lose that average as before;
She said she wouldn't join the union on a bet,
But now she's furloughed and oh does she regret.
She wouldn't keep her job secure and join the ACA
We're sorry — But Annie doesn't work here anymore.
There are more songs. There's a mimeographed sheet full of them which one of the local put out for a dance. (The following are taken from an ACA Songbook)
