History

The Canadian Electrical Workers Union emerged out of a breakaway movement from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), Local 213 in 1966/1967. It was formed, according to Barry Sharbo, “to combat minority treatment of Canadian electrical workers’ programs by the [American-led] IBEW.”
