Site of a 1979 strike that turned bloody. Machinists Lodge 459 member Don Pilla, among a group of workers picketing the company's non-union plant in Coon Rapids, was killed after a truck plowed through the picketline. His death led to landmark state legislation requiring all vehicles to stop before attempting to pass through a picketline. Pilla has been memorialized through an annual scholarship offered by the Minnesota AFL-CIO.
