Description

First published in 1979, We Stood Together tells the stories of twelve of Canada's outstanding labour leaders and organizers.
Their accounts tell the behind-the-scenes stories of some of the key events in the twentieth-century Canadian history: the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike; the 1935 On-to-Ottawa trek of the unemployed, which played a major role in the defeat of Tory Prime Minister R.B. Bennett; the 1945 Ford strike in Windsor, which consolidated the rights of big industrial unions; the 1972 Common Front of Quebec's public sector workers.
We Stood Together offers vivid and immediate accounts of the most exciting and influential moments in Canadian labour history.
