Learning at Work


Brothers and sisters,

Following the Great Recession, workers all over the world are struggling against lay-offs and cuts in wages, benefits and public services. To be successful, these struggles need to support each other across borders so that workers and their unions in one country can learn from experiences in other countries and together build a stronger international labour movement. 

The Labour Studies Program at Athabasca University offers a new tool that aims at making at least a modest contribution to such efforts, a new course on Global Labour History.

Check it out at:, be in touch if you have any questions about it and tell others who might be interested.

For general information on our Labour Studies Program see:


In solidarity,
