PNLHA-16-calendar-cover(Sept. 9, 2015) — The Pacific Northwest Labor History Association (PNLHA) produces a colorful labor history calendar with more than 35 pictures. The 36th edition is available this month.

This is the longest produced labor history calendar in the country. Almost every calendar day lists an historic event that has affected or affects the lives of working people. The calendar has been welcome in union homes and workplaces since its inception in 1979, and has been educational for families and co-workers. Unions and unionists are encouraged to purchase and display this calendar in their workplaces and homes. (See details on how to order below.)



The calendar features photos like these. (Clockwise from top left.)
