On this day in Wisconsin history:
1964 - Janesville Auto Workers Strike
On this date about 4,800 members of UAW Locals 95 and 121 walked off their jobs at the Fisher Body and Chevrolet plants in Janesville, as the United Auto Workers staged a nationwide strike against GM over a number of unresolved issues including grievance procedures, production standards and work conditions.

Are they still on strike or is this a new one?
