This is a history of the labour movement in the Australian region of North Queensland during the first two decades of the twentieth century. It describes and analyses the emergence and development of trade unionism and the industrial and political behaviour of the northern working class. While focusing logically on the institutions of the labour movement, the experiences and attitudes of the ordinary worker are recorded where the evidence permits.
