Peterborough and District Labour Council Poster

The Peterborough and District Labour Council wanted to celebrate their 60th anniversary with a poster that commemorated the history of union organizing and the struggle for labour rights in Peterborough.

Peterborough was home to many historic strikes including the 1937 Dominion Textile Strike and the 1966 Tilco Plastic Factory Strike, two major strikes that fought for the rights of women workers.

I worked with the Graphic History Collective to figure out the historical elements and design of the poster.
