The 1936-1937 Flint Strike
Presented by:
Edward McCleland, Author
The 1936-1937 Flint sit-down strike gave birth to the United Auto Workers and set standards for industry wages throughout America. Learn how strikers occupied GM plants, confronted the police and National Guard, and sought help from the Women’s Emergency Brigade to secure collective bargaining rights, retirement benefits, and better wages.
