Labour Movement and Labour Law: Development of Two Introductory Units for Secondary Students. ERIBC Reports. Report No. 79:1.
Labour Advisory Committee, Terrace (British Columbia).
Introductory teaching units for secondary students on the history of the Canadian labor movement and labor law are presented in this report. Five units are outlined, addressing the following questions: (1) How do students perceive organized labor, its position in today's society, and its historical development?; (2) What knowledge do students have of unions and their historical roots?; (3) What social and economic conditions affected the development of the labor movement?; (4) What are some of the major events in Canadian and British Columbia labor history?; and (5) What are the issues that face labor today, and how do these concerns fit into a broader view of society? At the end of each unit is a short list of recommended books with a brief critique. Appendixes include a glossary of terms commonly used in the labor movement, a question-and-answer section concerning the term "right to work," short descriptions of "anti-union" Canadian legislation, and descriptions of Canadian legislation concerning hours and wages and health and safety.
