A Class Act: An Illustrated History of the Labour Movement in Newfoundland & Labrador


Union activists rarely make it into the history books and when they do the picture is seldom flattering. In this new edition of A Class Act retired journalist Bill Gillespie confronts the myth.

This is the story of how Newfoundland and Labrador union members turned the nation, the colony and the province into the most highly organized jurisdiction in North America. Gillespie’s research reveals union losses and victories, their weaknesses and strengths and ultimately, their success. The narrative is illustrated with more than a hundred photographs.
