The Canadian Labour Congress is founded.  The CLC is an umbrella organization for affiliated Canadian and international unions, representing three million workers.  “What we wish for ourselves we desire for all.  That includes decent wages, healthy and safe workplaces, fair labour laws, equality rights, dignity in retirement, a sustainable environment and respect for basic human rights.”
