South Asian Canadian Labour History Project
Union Zindabad! South Asian Canadian Labour History in British Columbia is a partnership with the South Asian Studies Institute (University of the Fraser Valley) in the South Asian Canadian Legacy Project, supported by a 1.14 million dollar contribution from the Province of BC.
It explores the long and complex relationship with the labour movement. From early exclusionary practices to a recognition that racism is a tool of the boss to divide workers, the tenacity and strength of community has always been forward looking. As a result, the labour movement has benefited from strong South Asian leaders, activists and members.
