Three upcoming labour-related events in Alberta:
In Edmonton, May Day celebrations (May 1) begin with a rally at the Legislature (5:30 om, May 1) followed by a march down Jasper Avenue to Grant Notley Park with dinner to follow.
In Calgary, May Day celebrations (May 1) begin at Memorial Park (Corner of 4th Street and 12th Ave SW) at 5 pm with a picket followed by a potluck in the Central Memorial Park Library (12th Ave and 2nd St).
The 2014 Alberta Labour History Institute conference (June 18-20, University of Alberta) offers an interesting mix of popular and academic sessions for those interested in labour history. This year’s theme focuses on labour and social movements.
