The Punch Press: United Automobile Workers of America. Official Strike Bulletin. Flint, Michigan: 1937.

The Punch Press was the official United Auto Workers Union (UAW) bulletin for the 1937 Flint General Motors Sit-Down Strike. The bulletin was published by a group of University of Michigan students at the behest of UAW officials, and came out irregularly from January 19, 1937 to early March 1937. The bulletins were mimeographed, with each issue not more than three pages in length, and distributed at the strike site.
