A easy way to understand the function of the XPDNC Labour Directory website is to liken it with other paper based directories you are already familiar with. Take the telephone directory for example. Like the telephone book, we itemise the entries according to a geographic sort order. In particular, the phone book for a large community would list the twelve Smith's whose first initial starts with the letter A by their alphabetised street address. You would find those A. Smith's who live on the same street listed by ascending house number. Once you had located the entry you seek it is a simple task to scan across to find the number.
The entries in this website are laid out in alphabetised and numerically ascending order also. Once you have scrolled through the web page and found the item that interests you, simply move to the far left and click on the number you find there. Clicking on the number should cause the Internet browser to launch a new page that presents the website you seek.
In large urban centres there may be a number of different phone directories which furnish listings that pertain to their titled content. You can find separate books that contain residential listings, business listings, commercial listings, industrial listings, local, regional and federal government listings and so on. The XPDNC website can be viewed in a similar light. This website presents clickable links to other websites that are of interest to those searching for labour related content.
You will find listings for 'Aircraft Hangars - Designers and Builders' in the pages of business phone listings, you won't find them in the residential pages. Businesses that plan, layout, and erect these structures are clearly not individuals or families that reside in homes. Quite likely, you would find phone numbers for the firms' owner and employees within the residential pages, but you would look in the business directory for their office number. In like manner, we list links to websites that focus on labour issues. We don't itemise personal details about individual workers.
You can view the overall categories of links and access them using our main links page.
