  • Notes 
    • Cigarmaker Baptist 1901 Canadian Census for Ward 3, Toronto Centre: David (age 25, b. 17 Mar 1876) his wife Mary (age 27, b. 017 Sep 1873) and their children: Maud (age 7, b. 03 Feb 1894), Roy (age 5, b. 05 Feb 1896) and Emma ( age 6/12, b. 17 Sep 1899). David is working as a cigar maker with an annual income of $500 per year. Maud and Roy are at school. 1911 Canadian Census for 58 Hook Ave, Toronto: David W (age 37, occ: cigarmaker at a cigar factory, income: $600 per year) and wife Mary (age 37) and their children Maud J (age 17, occ: packer at a paper merchant, income: $260 per year), Joseph R (age 15, occ: cash boy at a dept store, income: $200 per year), Emma W (age 10), Clara O (age 8) and Janet G (age 7). David Kennedy of 171 College Street is traveling on 11 Oct 1940 from Toronto, thru Buffalo, NY, to Washington DC, to the Cigar Makers International Union. He was a union executive. Nearest relative is daughter Emma Lloyd of 448 Shaw Street in Toronto Traveled on Canadian Passport No. A106543 - valid thru 10/03/1941 Cigar Makers International Union The union was founded in 1864 as the Cigar Makers' National Union of America and changed its name to the Cigar Makers' International Union in 1867. It participated in the formation of the Federation of Organized Trade and Labor Unions in 1881. The following year, seceding New York City locals formed the Cigarmakers' Progressive Union of America, which rejoined the International in 1886. The American Federation of Labor chartered the Cigar Makers in 1887. The CMIU represented skilled cigar makers of various ethnic backgrounds. By its 1867 constitution the union admitted women, although the policy was openly defied by some of its own city locals. The union pressed for higher wages, shorter hours, better working conditions, and the right of collective bargaining. After 1880, Cigar manufacturers who negotiated labor contracts with the CIMU affixed blue labels to boxes of "union made" cigars. Previously, local chapters issued their own stamps including white labels, used by the Cigar Makers' Association of the Pacific Coast to show that their cigars were made by white labor, in response to the growing use of low-wage, Chinese immigrant labor. In 1875, the cigar makers' local in St Louis tried to encourage consumers to buy union-made cigars by using a red label. The national union created a standard blue "union made" label in 1880. Union stamps underwent frequent changes and are an excellent help in dating cigar boxes. The "Sept. 1880" date added top center on a label was added in 1888 and appears on all CMIU cigar (not stogie) issues until 1974. The CMIU's membership dropped steadily as mechanization and unskilled cigar workers (known as "bunch breakers") replaced skilled cigar makers after World War I, and as cigarettes grew in popularity. The union was eventually disbanded in 1974. [Source: Wikpedia]
