The Canadian Association of Labour Media is a network of union publications and editors that provides labour-friendly stories and graphics and training for labour communicators. Each year, the CALM organizes a national skills-sharing conference that brings together labour union communicators and activists from all major labour unions in Canada.
This year's conference space at the University of Windsor was shared, for the first time, with the Canadian LabourTech conference - a network of labour union staff, volunteers and social justice advocates who share information on new technologies in an effort to facilitate more effective communication across the progressive movement.
