AUTO-LITE STRIKE MEMORIAL

Spectators surround the newly dedicated plaque honoring the bloody 1934 strike at the former Electric Auto-Lite factory in North Toledo. The ceremony yesterday was in Union Memorial park on Elm Street near Champlain Street, dedicated in 2001 and including bronze statues that cost $225,000. The strike, during which two workers were killed and 200 were injured, helped lead to federal laws giving workers the right to unionize.
