Flint Sit-Down Strike

Price
$5

This image pays homage to Roscoe Van Zandt and his fellow Flint Sit-Down strikers of 1936-37. Viewed as the birth of the modern labor movement, in December of that year Michigan autoworkers ‘sat down’ in the automobile factory and would not allow their bosses to remove manufacturing equipment to another plant. After taking over the factory, the workers self-organized an autonomous and democratic structure.

Printed at the worker-owned Stumptown Printers, Portland, OR.

This is #60 in the Celebrate People’s History Poster Series.
