On this week’s edition of Rank and File Radio – Prairies Edition:
First, a follow up with Nicole Montford, a first-time organizer in Calgary, Alberta, who recently organized a day of action to support a nationalized inter-city bus service to replace Greyhound. We’ll talk about her experience organizing and what she learned in the process. You can check out the campaign at www.NationalizeBusRoutes.ca and on Twitter @NationalizeBus .
You can hear an extended interview with Nicole below.
Second, we’ll talk to Scott Price who is a labour historian with UFCW 832 here in Manitoba about the importance of working people documenting their own history and struggles, and how unions and grassroots movements can incorporate oral history and knowledge sharing as a key component of their organizing.
