Pinning Down the Union: The Button Project

The Button Project is an online exhibition by the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources Library that will explore labour history through pinback buttons. We will focus on Canadian examples in order to examine protests, boycotts, unions, and movements through material culture.

The IRHR Library is grateful to Rahna Moreau for her donation of pins and buttons.
