Lumberworkers #120 of the I.W.W.

Many lumberworkers in Northern Ontario joined the I.W.W. during World War 1 but later joined the O.B.U. during the ban on the I.W.W. Some of the lumberworkers returned to the I.W.W. #120 in 1924. The Sudbury branch appeared to be the primary I.W.W. organizers for the lumberworkers in Northern Ontario. The Sudbury branch of the I.W.W. #120 Lumberworkers moved to Port Arthur in 1926 and operated out of 260 Bay St. until 1931 at which time all their supplies were moved to the Labour Temple at 314 Bay St. However, the hub of the lumberworkers' union activity was based out of the Labour Temple during this time. After 192? local #120 was competition to the Lumberworkers Industrial Union of Canada based at 316 Bay Street.
