A Long Uphill Grind

A Long Uphill Grind: A brief history of labour and the law in Alberta 1905 – 2012 (Download PDF) provides a unique and penetrating look at the regime of labour law that has evolved in the course of this Province’s history, as seen from the perspective of the labour movement, as well as a number of individual working people. Its intent is to provide trade unionists, lawyers and others who deal with employment and labour relations law with an accessible and readable perspective on this particular aspect of working class history. It also provides a resource that can be readily adapted by teachers, trainers and professors for use in their courses. While volumes of commentary have been produced by and for labour boards, courts and university students by trade unions, public officials and lawyers, very little has been written by scholars specifically for the reading public about this area of the law as it has been drafted and practiced in Alberta.
