We trace our roots to 1899, when a group of retail clerks in Vancouver met to discuss how they could improve their working conditions. Since then, we have established a track record of winning key battles for our members. We are known as the leading experts on worker’s rights in the retail food and industrial food processing industries. Today, we represent over 20,000 workers in a diverse range of industries, including community health, seasonal agriculture, and professional services. Learn more about our history here.
