The B.C. Labour Heritage Centre (BCLHC) has embarked on an exciting project entitled COVID Chronicles: Labour’s Story. We want to record first-hand accounts of BC’s working people during the COVID 19 pandemic.
The purpose of the project is to capture, expand and enrich history by documenting the current moment as it relates to unions, their members and how their work was impacted by the pandemic and the public health orders that were made. This is truly an historic time and when labour historians look back, what would you like to tell them?
The project will run from July to December 2020.
Below are some of the stories we have collected from BC union leaders describing their members’ experiences.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support from WorkSafeBC to this project.
