In Our Union, Jason Russell argues that the union local, as aninstitution of working-class organization, was a key agent for theCanadian working class as it sought to create a new place for itself inthe decades following World War II. Using UAW/CAW Local 27, a compositeunion in London, Ontario, as a case study, he offers a ground-levellook at union membership, including some of the social and politicalagendas that informed union activities. Drawing on interviews withformer members of UAW/CAW Local 27 as well as on archival sources,Russell offers a narrative intended to speak not only to labourhistorians but to union members themselves.
