Pedigo describes how he and his fellow union members participated in the flying squadrons during the 1934 general strike. Although his factory was not involved in the strike, his union worked to help other striking workers in the area. In particular, he describes here how they tried to prompt workers in Danville and Hopewell to walk out and join the strike. While he argues that the flying squadrons he was a part of did not face violent opposition, he notes that the threat of violence was real and that it was a risk they were willing to take.
