OUR TIMES LABOUR MAGAZINE SUMMER ISSUE

From the latest Centre for the Study of Education and Work (CSEW) email newsletter:


OUR TIMES LABOUR MAGAZINE SUMMER ISSUE

"In Cornwall, a high school teacher told us that while they used to raise funds for school trips and sports teams, now they raise money to buy food, because too many students are too hungry to learn."- Irene Harris, Ontario Federation of Labour's Drive to Work Caravan

Our Times' summer issue (Vol. 28 No.3) will be heading to the printer shortly. In this issue, we're highlighting the courageous struggle of migrant agricultural workers for safe and healthy working conditions and the right to unionize. We're also featuring the recent historic union stewards' assembly in Toronto. Plus we've got some great creative fiction and non-fiction, including Part 2 of Newfoundland writer Mike Heffernan's story about a deadly explosion aboard an oil tanker. It's a great issue, geared to building solidarity in hard times.

If you think you may want to order extra copies of this issue as an education resource for your workshops, schools, or to include in your conference or convention kits, please contact our business manager by June 25 at the latest. Telephone: 416-703-7661. Toll-free: 1-800-648-6131. E-mail: office@ourtimes.ca. Discounted prices are available for bulk orders.
