A brief review of the membership, different organizations, aims and policies of English and American unions is designed to provide the background to an understanding of the Canadian trade union movement. Study of the historical development of trade unions in Canada will be brief, but the effects on the Canadian labour movement of international unionism, of increased participation of white-collar and public-service employees in unions, and of recent political and economic changes will be examined in detail.
