Cartoonists' strike

 Human_dinosaur Disney memo prior to 1941 cartoonists' strike. Inter-office memorandum from Walt Disney to all employees, February 6, 1941. Disney alerts employees to a 50% drop in production, and urges them to discuss union matters on their own time. In a postscript he notes that he is filing a copy of this memo with the National Labor Relations Board. Disney cartoonists would later go on strike from May 29 to September 14, 1941
