Hey, I am a member of the Progressive Librarians Guild, London Ontario Student Chapter. We are developing a special library with the UWO teaching assistants union (PSAC Local 610). It is designed to be a collection of books on the history of the labour movement in Canada, the academic workplace, the student movement, and more. As a joint project, the library is intended to provide an information resource for union activists.
We are currently in the collections development and acquisition stage. Our question is two-fold: would you happen to know of any independent and labour-friendly publishers based in Canada? Would you have any suggestions for materials to strengthen this collection?
