Labour Day is a statutory holiday to recognize the contribution of workers to their country. In Canada, we celebrate Labour Day on the first Monday of September and mark the unofficial end
of summer with this long weekend. People might enjoy a late summer camping trip or participate in local events and festivals on this weekend.
Four labour topic books from the Walter Draycott Library and Resource Centre:
● 920 WHI by Howard White – “A Hard Man to Beat: The Story of Bill White, Labour Leader, Historian, Shipyard
Worker, Raconteur”
● 971 SEY by Edward E. Seymour – “An Illustrated History of Canadian Labour, 1800-1974”
● 971.1 WEJ compiled by Patricia Wejr & Howie Smith – “Fighting for Labour, Four Decades of Work in British
Columbia, 1910-1950”
● 971.1’920.72 GRI by Betty Griffin & Susan Lockhart – “Their Own History: Women’s Contribution to the Labour
Movement of British Columbia”
