Outline of the history of the Canadian Seamen's Union, by Charles Macdonald

  • MS-9-15, SF Box 52, Folder 27
  • File
  • July 29, 1977
File contains a preliminary outline of the History of the Canadian Seamen's Union 1936-1950 and a letter from Charles Macdonald to Tom McGrath, Bud Doucette, and Stan Wingfield. The Canadian Seaman's Union, established 1936 to improve the archaic working conditions and wages for ordinary commercial seamen. Affiliated to the Trades and Labour Congress, this effective, well supported, nationalist, communist led industrial union contributed to Canada's efforts in the Second World War. It gained concessions, was recognized as collective bargaining agent for ordinary seamen, and it fought unsuccessfully to retain Canada's merchant fleet.The outline is an attempt to line up the main sequence of events and the most important nonchronological matters that must be covered.

MacDonald, Charles F. H.
