With the 25th anniversary of the 1985 Hormel strike approaching later this month, the Austin Daily Herald is looking to gather stories from the strike — both good and bad — and share them with the Austin community.

If you have a story to tell, or a picture to share, please contact the Herald’s newsroom via e-mail at

Please keep written submissions relatively brief and appropriate for publication, as the Herald is planning on using select stories in a special issue set to run Aug. 15.
