About the Book
The campaign to unionize Bell Canada's huge workforce of operators, most of them overworked and underpaid women, was a central event in Canada's labour history. Joan Roberts tells the story of how determined campaigners won a major victory for working women, and established new standards for so-called ''pink collar'' jobs of the day.
