The best look anywhere into the US labor movement in the country. Lots of things to learn about the Sitdown strike in Flint.

This memorial is accessible by car. It's in the back lot of the UAW Region 1 offices, right off of I69 and VanSlyke. Very interesting and always kept up!

This celebrates the union movement. The sit down strike was the beginning of unions and memorial pays tribute to those who participated. A very interesting part of the automobile industry.

Tripadvisor spelled the name wrong in this listing. STRIKERS not Stikers. This memorial honors the Strikers who chose to "sit down" and take over the GM factory to bargain for fair wages and work conditions.
