After a period of unrest in the Grivița Railway Yards, workers began striking in February 1933, and the conflict escalated quickly following the arrest of two union leaders on February 15, 1933. Workers barricaded themselves inside the workshops as the Army called on them to disperse. An armed conflict ensued which resulted in the death of seven workers and twenty others who were seriously injured.
The Medal of the 25th Anniversary of the Heroic Struggle of Railwaymen and Oilmen was awarded to participants of the Grivița Strike.
The Bronze Medal features a reverse inscription that translates to "25th Anniversary of the Heroic Struggle of Oilmen and Railway Workers."
