Unseen Healers: A History of Hospital Workers

Written by 31 hospital workers, Unseen Healers records life in two Toronto hospitals in 1990. The authors, members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 2001 (Toronto General) and Local 1320 (Scarborough Centenary), were learners in MLEC Adult Basic Education classes. This working class history includes workers’ experiences and issues at the workplace and outside of work (health and safety, racism, sexism, on the job, childcare, immigration, unemployment insurance).
