1. One of many variations in names for the black cat as probably drawn by Ralph Chaplin. Chaplin dubbed it “Sab Cat”.  AKA Sabotabby. Used by the wobblies as a symbol of work slowdown or strike as a form of sabotage in labor history.

  2. A guerrilla audio production company operating in Ashland, Oregon made up of Union members and Union supporters.


Our Story SABOCAT  brought together I.A.T.S.E. Local 154 and Actor Equity Association for a unique contribution to the labor movement. Members of each union volunteered their professional skills to contribute to the next generation of original material in praise of all that labor has brought and brings to our society. We hope you’re picking up what we’re laying down. If you like it- please share it! Pass it along and spread the word. Make the choir sing louder or send it to someone who doesn’t know what Unions do. That’s what we made them for. We can even loan you this soapbox we’re standing on.
