Biographical history

Jerry Houle, a former member of the Brotherhood of Railway Carmen of the United States and Canada, attempted to establish a strong Canadian union in his profession in the 1980's. Active in the Vancouver section of the Shopcraft Organizing Committee, he became the National President of the Canadian Shopcraft Union which was connected to the Confederation of Canadian Unions. After an unsuccessful attempt to obtain a strong membership, the union disbanded.

Custodial history
