This fifty-year history is a celebration of the achievements of a labour organization. It is also an attempt to preserve the union’s record for future generations of members and activists. The book opens with the Taxation Staff Association, founded in 1943; this became the Taxation Component of the Public Service Alliance of Canada in 1966. As the Component became ever-more successful, it changed its name to the Union of Taxation Employees in 1987. Over the years, the union became known for its militancy and effectiveness but also, remarkably, for establishing good relations at every level with the employer, the Canada Revenue Agency. Truly, something to celebrate.
