2020 PNLHA Labor History Calendar — Time to Order

We are now taking orders for the 2020 PNLHA Labor History wall calendar, in its 42nd edition, is the only regional labor calendar in the country! The theme this year is “Celebrate Solidarity!”. While the scope is the Pacific Northwest, the calendar’s topical scope and themes are of interest to those beyond the region.
We’ve been striving to include labor history that puts the history of women and people of color on the forefront and the narratives of individual workers alongside big organizational histories.
You may note that the text has expanded to more historical detail. In an era where everything has been reduced to memes and tweets, we think of this calendar is a chance for real teachable moments of labor history that most of us were never taught in school.

TO ORDER: pnlha.calendar@gmail.com

Please consider joining the PNLHA in 2019 to reserve your calendar for 2020! Members who join in 2020 will receive the 2021 calendar.

Many of our local unions buy the calendars and give as a “thank you’” to shop stewards, e-board members & the membership at-large. Some buy and resell to help fund educational or labor history committees. These calendars also make great gifts for family, friends and co-workers! There are many ways to spread the word about

The 2020 calendar includes dozens of historical pictures as well as local union charter dates and major labor events.

As always, each 2019 PNLHA dues paying member is mailed a complimentary calendar

Happy Labor Day film watching

There aren’t many movies that qualify as appropriate viewing on Labor Day. One that does is Salt of the Earth, the story of a 1950s strike at a zinc mine in New Mexico that features a clash between the company and the mostly Mexican-American miners. It also features early feminist union supporters in action. You can see it on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3VPWmqaOb4. A PNLHA connection: Oregon trustee Ron Verzuh has made a short documentary film called Remembering Salt that is also available on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQdV9B8Zj-c.
