Larry Savage, Associate Professor of Labour Studies, Brock University
Savage’s research focuses on the politics of the Canadian labour
movement. In particular, his recent research has focused on the ways
in which labour unions engage with the NDP specifically, and electoral
politics more generally. Dr. Savage has published scholarly articles
or book chapters on the changing nature of party-union relationships,
union-sponsored strategic voting schemes, and labour's varied engagement
with local, provincial and federal politics.
Dr. Savage also co-maintains RethinkingLabour.ca,
a knowledge mobilization website which explores the relationship between
workers, unions and politics.
