Unions include the Seafarers International, the International Ladies Garment Workers, International Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, the Employees International Union, the Journeymen Barbers International Union and the International Wood Workers of America. There is one tag from the Second World Congress of the Confederazione Internazionale Sindacati Liberi (International Confederation of Free Unions) held in Milan. Most of the tags are labour ones. However, there are three tags (staff, delegate, and guest) to the founding convention of the New Democratic Party. Most of the tags are ribbons attached to pins. There are also three metal plaques: two of the Trades and Labor Congress of Canada (French and English) and one for Montreal, 1947-50, with the city’s motto “Concordia salus” and crest. The tags were originally stapled, pinned or glued to a polystyrene foam board. The board was photographed by archival staff before the tags were removed.
