Description

44 Days is the story of the workers who faced down corporate greed and changed the labour movement forever. In 1936, Flint, Michigan was a General Motors company town and a perilous place for union organisers, yet members of the fledgling United Auto Workers Union risked their livelihoods and lives to occupy the company’s most important plant in order to bring GM to the bargaining table. They faced freezing temperatures, police assaults and National Guard surveillance while holding the plant until General Motors relented and recognised the union in what has been called American history's most important strike.
