The Canadian Labour Movement is a fascinating story that brings to life the working men and women who built Canada's unions.
This concise history recounts the story of Canadian labour from the nineteenth century to the present day. First published in 1989, it has been updated to include new developments in the world of labour up to 1995. Heron depicts the major events and trends in labour's history, and assesses the current state and direction of the labour movement.
The Canadian Labour Movement is a masterful overview of the subject, providing a broad and accessible introduction to Canadian labour.

"A short, readable and insightful summary of the building of Canada's workers' movement.

- The Globe and Mail

"This excellent introduction to the history of Canadian labour is succinct, lucid, and balanced."

- David Bennett Canadian Book Review Annual

"As a work for undergraduate students and a non-academic general readership, the accomplishment that The Canadian Labour Movement represents should be acknowledged. [It is the only book to offer a brief, readable introduction to its subject drawing on the wealth of recent scholarship on Canadian working-class history ...this edition improves on the original and is bound to enjoy a wide readership, particularly in the field of labour studies."

- David Camfield Social History
