Quote from news article:

THE ATLANTA JOURNAL Wednesday, September 7, 1966

"Capt. James I. Martin, union president, said his independent
union is also contacting officials of locals of the International
Wesctatias of Fire Fighters, AFL-CIO, in order to put pressure on
IAFF national president William Buck.

"Capt. Martin's union wants IAFF members in Atlanta to walk
off the job, which they have not done. He said IAFF locals in
Boston, St. Louis, Chicago, Kansas City, Spokane, Wash., and
Louisville, Ky., have sent telegrams to Mr. Buck requesting that he
ask Local 134 in Atlanta to strike.

"According to Martin, the locals threatened to withdraw from

the IAFF if Buck does not allow Local 134 to strike."
