Canada's Unions

Front Cover
James Lorimer Limited, Publishers, Jan 1, 1976 - History - 350 pages
This book presents a picture of Canada's labour movement in the mid-seventies--its structure, its leaders, and aims.

Two parallel themes run through Canada's Unions: the surge in labour militancy led by teachers, hospital workers, federal government workers and other public employees in response to the pressure of rising inflation; and the rise of nationalism and the increasing independence of the Canadian union movement during the 1970s.

Canada's Union offers an unparalleled, immediate portrait of the state of the Canadian labour movement during a crucial decade of its existence.
