Government Documents

Publications of the federal and provincial governments can be useful in studying labour relations.  All government documents in the Library collection are recorded in the Library Catalogue.  Many of these are in electronic form and there is a link in the record to the item. 

Canadian Research Index
Indexes and abstracts Canadian government publications from the federal, provincial and municipal levels, as well as from selected research centres, non-profit organizations and educational institutions.  Many of the documents indexed are available in the Microlog Fiche Collection which is also available at the U of A Humanities and Social Sciences Library.

Government websites can also be a valuable source of information.  You can find links to govenment websites on the Government Information page of the Library website (from the Resources menu of the Library Home Page.)

An example of a website that may be helpful is the Alberta Labour Relations Board website which includes the full-text of Board decisions from 2001 to date.

Websites

Besides government websites, you may want to look at the websites of particular unions where you will find information from the union perspective.  Enter the full name of the union in an Internet search engine (e.g. Google).  Some examples of public sector unions:
