|UNIFOR, the largest private sector union in the country with approximately 300,000 members from coast to coast, was the
result of a merger between the CAW (Canadian Auto Workers) & CEP (Communication energy & Paper).
Since the founding convention on May 30th, 2013 UNIFOR has continued to grow through organizing and mergers with
other unions into a diverse and progressive organization representing workers throughout virtually every sector of the
UNIFOR members work in aerospace, mining, fishing, auto and specialty vehicle assembly, auto parts, hotels, airlines, rail,
education, hospitality, retail, road transportation, health care, manufacturing, shipbuilding, communication, energy, paper
and other sectors of the economy.
UNIFOR is not only dedicated to fighting for workers rights at the bargaining table, it's equally committed to taking on
economic, political and social issues that affect its members and their families in the broader community.
