Sid Ryan, one of Canada’s most courageous, influential and progressive union leaders, tells the story of his life, from his upbringing in Ireland to his leadership of one of Canada’s largest unions.
A stirring, heartfelt manifesto written by a man who fervently believes in what workers with their civil society allies can achieve for the good of all.

Sid Ryan, one of Canada’s most courageous and progressive union leaders, draws on the experience of his varied and colourful life to show what is right with the labour movement, what is wrong, and what has to change if it is to avoid becoming irrelevant.

He calls for the adoption of Social Movement Unionism, in which labour forges an alliance with other progressive elements in civil society, taking up the cause of young people, precarious workers, and immigrants. He demands a renewed commitment to the NDP, the party that was built by unions, and he argues that the LEAP Manifesto should become the pillars of the movement in Canada.

A Grander Vision is a stirring, heartfelt manifesto written by a man who fervently believes in what workers with their civil society allies can achieve for the good of all.
