From the Jan. 5, 1967 News Record:

Most automobile mechanics were back to work Wednesday following a walk-out of nearly all garages in Gillette on Tuesday morning, the first day of the new year. Mechanics and management of the Ford, Chevrolet, Jeep and Chrysler - Plymouth agencies met on Tuesday to determine the cause of the dissatisfaction. It was found flat rates on garage work was being raised the first of the year, but the mechanics percentage had been decreased. This did not, however, lower their pay, but actually balanced out about the same as previous prevailing wages. Once the issues were understood by both sides, the problems were ironed out and most of the mechanics were reported to have returned to work on Wednesday.
