Wear your White Shirt..........Commemorate the men and women, in their fight for working conditions, who participated in a sit-down strike at General Motors in 1937. "These autoworkers helped the UAW union to become the sole bargaining agent for General Motors autoworkers." As part of the symbolism of this strike, everyone wears a white shirt.The strike was intended to send a message to management that "blue collar" workers had earned the right to the same respect as their management counterparts.
