The needle trade in Winnipeg : a study in trade unions
Johnson, Thelma Audrey
This thesis is concerned with the development and growth of unionism within the industries comprising the needle trades in the Winnipeg area. Its precise scope and purpose is to discuss the effects of union organization -- economic, psychological, and sociological -- upon the employees and employers alike. In a narrow sense, the general improvement in wages, hours, and working conditions for the employees, and the establishment of a stabilized industry for the employers constitutes the base and central theme.
