UAW Sitdowners Monuments & Memorial Park

1940 West Atherton Road
Flint, MI 48507
+1 810 232 8900 (Tourist Information)
Located on the Atherton Road in Flint is the Sit-Downer's Memorial Park, dedicated to the workers of General Motors who participated in the Sit-Down Strike of 1936. The park features bronze monuments depicting an actual scene during the monumental strike. At one end are the men, sitting down and at the other end are the women rebelling against the tyranny of factory owners. Commissioned by the United Auto Workers (UAW) and designed by ace sculpture Janice Trimpe, the park is significant not only marking one of the first sit-down strikes in the United States, but also the progress of labor unions and eventual beginning of the human resource departments.
