President of GM Negotiates

When the Fisher Body strike first began, President of General Motors, Alfred P. Sloan, Jr. "refused to attend any conferences until strikers left all their plants." With pressure from President Roosevelt to quickly resolve the strike, Sloan changed his mind. On January 21, Sloan (on the far left) met with the Secretary of Labor and the Michigan Governor to negotiate the strike's ending.
