Yellow Trade Unions

19 May 1909
Neue Glühlichter
ZK 1246

The Viennese satirical magazine Neue Glühlichter (New Glow Lamps), started in 1889 as Glühlichter, portrayed the problem of the yellow trade unions in its issue of May 19, 1909. Unlike the red trade unions, the yellow unions aim to work in harmony with employers and church authorities. "Mit diesem Gezücht wird man doch auch fertig werden!" (We will bring this vermin to heel!)
