Through the use of stock footage and stills photographs, this film describes
labour's early history in Canada, the growth of unionism, and the role of
government as both friend and foe of Canadian workers. The film outlines the
little-known role of William Lyon Mackenzie King in developing both
theoretical and practical solutions to labour conflict in Canada and the
United States. Particular attention is given to the seventies, during which a
new era of collective-bargaining relations emerged.
