Without labour there would be no history. As this book shows, the history of labour in Alberta is colourful, exciting and filled with dramatic characters and events well worth discovering.
Alberta Labour traces the growth of union organizations in Alberta: the Knights of Labour in the 1880s, the legendary Wobblies, the abortive One Big Union and finally the Alberta Federation of Labour, founded in 1912. This history, the first of its kind, has been compiled from interviews with union members, original letters and documents, and contemporary newspapers and magazines.
Illustrated with over 90 full-page photographs, most of them never before published, Alberta Labour vividly depicts the working people of Alberta and their unparalleled contribution to the province's history.
