The Labour History PSA journals were published from March, 1977 to early 1982. They included numerous articles on labour history as well as lesson ideas for use by teachers in their classrooms. They are a valuable source of labour history in British Columbia.
These materials were digitized by the BC Teachers’ Federation in 2019. Included are lesson plans and manuals for teaching labour history.
