We’re in the middle of the Twelve Days of Christmas and, whether or not you celebrate this time of year, it’s nearly impossible to avoid hearing this song. To pay tribute to the fiercest workers of 2015, CALM has compiled our own version: the Twelve Days of Strike (plus one extra territory).
Not every story here is about a strike, but every one features workers who confronted management and fought for more secure working conditions. Instead of twelve days, we chose one struggle in each of Canada’s ten provinces and three territories. We encourage you to help the workers featured, where possible.
