Sydney Steel After the War: Politics, Economics & the Canadian Steel Industry, 1945-1966, Presented by Dr. Lachlan MacKinnon (Tue. 5 Mar, 2019 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)

Sydney Steel After the War: Politics, Economics & the Canadian Steel Industry, 1945-1966, Presented by Dr. Lachlan MacKinnon
Tuesday, March 5
7:00pm – 8:30pm
McConnell library (Sydney)

The Dominion Steel and Coal Company (Dosco) announced the planned closure of its integrated steel works in Sydney, Nova Scotia in October 1967. While the province ultimately took control of the mill’s operations, the Black Friday announcement was a particularly dramatic moment in the history of the city. In order to understand the forces that influenced this decision, it is first necessary to examine longer-term trends in the Canadian steel industry dating back to the years of the Second World War.

Dr. MacKinnon will present the history that led to the DOSCO closure announcement on Oct. 13, 1967. The presentation will also include some discussion of the history of Local 1064 – the steelworkers’ union – during the same time period.

Lachlan MacKinnon is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Humanities at Cape Breton University. His research explores the history of coal and steel in Nova Scotia, the Canadian labour movement, and workers’ experiences of industrial decline in Atlantic Canada.

Everyone welcome.
