Fleck Strike and Feminist Solidarity

This interview focuses the 1978 landmark strike against Fleck Manufacturing, an auto-wiring plant located outside London ON, and the support that Organized Working Women mobilized on behalf of the women strikers. The interview offers insight into the decision of the United Auto Workers (UAW) to fight the strike as a woman’s strike and considers the role this solidarity played in forging an alliance between the labour and feminist movements.
