Sit Down Strike of 1937

Sit Down Strike of 1937
(life-size)

The General Motors sitdown strike in 1937 was one of the most significant events in the American labor movement, as GM was at last forced to recognize the United Auto Workers (UAW) as an official bargaining unit. This monument, commissioned by the UAW to commemorate this historic event, includes six figures and an eternal flame. The pose was taken from an archival photo showing four workers in the plant during the strike. The woman off to the side represents the brigade that brought the food to the strikers. The dedication was Labor Day, 2003. It will be the focal point of the planned UAW museum in Flint, Michigan.
