The conference organizing committee of the Canadian Association for Work and Labour Studies (CAWLS) invites submissions for participation in its 6th annual conference. Workers have always made progress through struggle. But rarely have workers faced as many issues simultaneously as they do today. The 2019 CAWLS conference is an opportunity to engage conversations and share ideas about how to build circles of solidarity to make a better future for all workers. Questions relevant to these conversations include: will young workers be able to find stable employment so they can move to the next stage of their lives? Will recent gains in minimum wages and labour standards be maintained? How will labour laws shift with changing governments, and what is the role of workers and labour organizations within the realm of electoral politics? Will Artificial Intelligence and automation manifest in a more inegalitarian and undemocratic society? How will recent immigrants fair in this changing economic landscape? What does reconciliation mean for workers and their organizations? How can workers address growing concerns of racism in our communities? The committee welcomes proposals for single papers, thematic streams, multiple paper panels, roundtables, and workshops. The participation of researchers in union and community settings is encouraged. We welcome proposals on all topics that highlight importance of diversity to the past, present, and future of work and labour studies within Canada and beyond.
