Syndicale pers online / Trade union periodicals online

Syndicale pers online / Trade union periodicals online provides access to four digitized collections of source materials relating to the trade unions. They contain the periodicals of the Syndicale Kommissie (Trade Union Commission) and het Belgisch Vakverbond, precursors of the socialist trade union ABVV.

The entire collection of pre-war Belgian socialist trade union periodicals is available for online consultation. The Journal des Correspondances (1903-1914) and Het Korrespondentieblad (1907-1914), its counterpart in Flanders, were the official newsletters of the Syndicale Kommissie (Trade Union Commission) of the Belgian Workers Party (BWP) before the First World War. Le Mouvement Syndical Belge and De Belgische Vakbeweging were the successors to these papers in December 1918. In the 1930s thematic supplements appeared about labour and justice, and about trade union youth activities.

In November 2014, these collections contain over 1100 PDF files (sorted by journal, year, and issue). Each file contains one issue of a particular periodical. An OCR-programme allows users to perform a full-text search of these files.

This project was made possible by Amsab-Institute of Social History.
