"Participation in strike"

My mother and sisters use to work for this factory and were not getting paid enough money so Cesar Chavez came to help the community by starting a union strike.  The most I remember is that the factory was closed for a few days as the workers stood in the entrance of the property.  Cesar Chavez and others including my mother was loaded in a bus that the local police department had brought and they were taken to jail for one night. They were out the next day but the strike was a success.
