Learning in Solidarity (2002)

A Union Approach to Worker-Centred Literacy

Unions in Canada have a long track record of being at the forefront of creating learning opportunities for workers and their families. Despite employer resistance and provincial cutbacks, Canadian unions are developing a holistic and democratic vision and practice of worker-centred literacy that is emerging as a significant presence within the adult education field.

In the article "Learning in Solidarity," which appears in the periodical Just Labour (vol. 1, 2002), the author explores the critical role unions play in worker education. She looks at how current union involvement with literacy continues a long tradition of providing learning opportunities for workers. She then discusses the work-centred approach to workplace learning and the benefits to workers and the workplace of this kind of learning.
