Join the Shoeleather History Project to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the historic Colt Firearms strike. From January 1986 to April 1990 the UAW workers at Colt beat the odds, protected their benefits, and bought the company.
Despite President Ronald Reagan's attack on unions, what made the Colt strike successful? What lessons can we learn for the (near) future? Strike veterans and community supporters will come together to listen and discuss the impact of this struggle on their lives, our community, and the labor movement.
