The Canadian Association of Labour Media

The Canadian Association of Labour Media is a communications cooperative that represents nearly 200 labour unions across Canada. Together, we seek to strengthen the communications capacity of the labour movement and provide a link between large national unions and federations, and smaller locals, in all regions and sectors in Canada

Local 88 Communications Committee has been a member of CALM since 2011. We endeavor to keep our members up to date and informed on the topics that matter to them, using the most applicable technology and social media tools

The CALM Awards are for members of the Canadian Association of Labour Media. The awards honour excellence in the print, broadcast, online and graphics arts fields for material produced. Judged by independent professionals in each field.
