  • Collection
  • 1972-1992

The Pacific Socialist Education Association’s Pacific Tribune Photograph Collection comprises over 40,000 35-mm images taken for the weekly Vancouver labour newspaper Pacific Tribune. The images cover a twenty-year period, from 1972 to 1992, one of the most active periods in British Columbia’s labour history.
Included in the collection are images from some of the most tumultuous events involving British Columbia’s labour movements:

  • the province-wide campaign against insurance rate increases introduced by the new Social Credit government in 1976
  • the opposition to federal wage controls that culminated in a one-day national work stoppage in 1976
  • the historic Solidarity movement in 1983
  • labour’s campaign — that also included a one-day work stoppage in 1987 — against government legislation that severely curtailed the right to organize unions and bargain collectively

The collection is also a rich source of images from political and other social movements, including:

  • rallies and campaigns for human rights
  • internationally recognized Vancouver walks for peace during the mid-1980s
  • anti-poverty and housing movements
  • womens' rights
  • First Nations' movements
  • environmental campaigns
