Our 2019 calendar features The Great Labour Revolt of 1919.
The Alberta Labour History Institute calendar for 2019 provides a concise and dramatic
history of the Great Labour Revolt of 1919. It was the year when labour, disgusted by
post-war profiteering and anti-worker practices by employers and governments alike
that continued such attacks from the pre-war and wartime periods, lay down tools and
took to the streets en masse to demand a new economic system.
The ALHI Calendar is more than a calendar. It is a readable and condensed but highly accurate history of trade unionism and workers’ struggles in Alberta. It is also the top source of income for ALHI as it goes about its work of doing oral histories of Alberta working people and documenting in various ways the struggles of working people to build unions and to fight for political, social, and economic democracy for the people of Alberta.
