NATIONAL WHITE SHIRT DAY/WHITE T-SHIRT DAY
National White Shirt Day, also know as National White T-Shirt Day, is always observed on February 11th.
This unofficial national holiday honors the men and women who participated in the strike at General Motors in 1937.
The United Auto Workers (UAW) union was helped by these autoworkers to become the sole bargaining agent for General Motors autoworkers.
White Shirt Day is best known in Flint, Michigan, and other cities that have a GM auto plant.
