Established in 1913, the New Brunswick Federation of Labour is the

second oldest provincial federation of labour in Canada. Its history

began in early campaigns for workers' compensation and union

recognition and continues today in the latest battles to defend social

standards, secure employment, and union rights. Active initially in the

port city of Saint John and the railway centre of Moncton, the

federation soon expanded to include workers in the mines and mills of

the north, taking up the causes of public employees and women workers

and confronting the realities of life and work in a bilingual


A pioneering study, written in clear and forceful prose, this is the

untold story of provincial labour solidarities that succeeded in

overcoming divisions and defeats to raise the status of working men and

women within New Brunswick society. Drawing on archives, newspapers,

and workers' own descriptions of their experiences, Frank makes

an original contribution to our understanding of the political,

economic, and social development of the province. In so doing, he helps

meet the need for an informed public awareness of the history of

workers and unions in all parts of Canada.
