Canadian Labour in Crisis

Please join Fernwood Publishing in celebrating the release of David Camfield's Canadian Labour in Crisis: Reinventing the Workers' Movement, on Thursday, May 5, at 8:00 pm 
at Mondragon Bookstore and Coffeehouse, 91 Albert Street.  

Tasty vegan food, beverages and ambiance will be provided.  

David Camfield, an associate professor in labour studies at the University of Manitoba, 
will deliver a short talk on the state of Canadian labour and will have copies of his book available for purchase.  

Does Canada have a working-class movement? 
Though many of us think of ourselves as middle class, most of us are, in fact, working class: we work for a wage. And though many of us are members of unions, the most significant organizations of the working-class movement in Canada, most people do not understand themselves to be part of this movement.   

Canadian Labour in Crisis asks why this is so.
