The Co-operative Press Association (CPA) was established in January 1944 as a news service for the publications of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF), and included such labour and union newsletters as subscribers: CCL News, Canadian Railway Employees Monthly, Steel Labour, Packinghouse Worker, and the United Auto Workers publications in Oshawa and Windsor. By 1953, CPA had 17 paying subscribers, three CCF and 14 union papers. When the Canadian Labour Congress was founded in 1956, the number had risen to 40. In 1972, the name of the CPA was changed to Co-operative Press Associates.
This collection consists of news releases from 1961 to 1971 and 1973 to 1980.
There is an index to the news releases on microfilm reel C-6858.
