Québec trade unionism in the 20th century

Drawn from the collections of the McCord Museum, this selection consists of some 50 cartoons on trade unionism in Québec from the 1950s to today. Most of the drawings were done by cartoonists John Collins (1917-2007), Normand Hudon (1929-1997), Aislin (born 1942), Serge Chapleau (born 1945) and Éric Godin (born 1964), who all worked, or still work, for Montreal newspapers.
