Community unionism in Canada and labor's (re)organization of space

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper begins with a brief overview of how researchers have theorized the effects of capital's (re)organization of production on the geographies of trade unionism. Following a conceptual outline of the emergence of community unionism, two examples of Canadian labor unions actively seeking formal coalitions with groups peripheralized by the same processes of economic restructuring are presented. The cases of Canadian postal workers and homeworkers in the garment industry demonstrate that alternative approaches to labor organization can overcome the imposed spatial reorganization of capitalism and allow workers and communities to produce more preferable economic geographies
