Biographical history

The Hotel Industry was one of the first industries unionized in B.C., the first charter being granted in 1900 to the Hotel and Restaurant Employees' Union Local No. 28. Gradually the smaller locals began merging until 1974, when the Beverage Dispensers' Union, Local No. 676, and the Hotel and Restaurant Employees' Union, Local No. 28, merged to become the Hotel and Restaurant Employees' and Bartenders' Union, local No. 16. The final province-wide merger occurred in 1976 with the creation of the Hotel, Restaurant, and Culinary Employees' and Bartenders' Union, having 12,000 unionized employees under this local.
