Biographical history

The Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 1004 was established in 1966. It had several predecessor bodies including the Vancouver Civic Employees' Union Trades Labour Congress Local 28 (Outside Workers) est. 1919 and the Municipal Employees' Co-ordinating Conference (M.E.C.C.). During its history it was suspended by the Trades Labour Congress in 1951 and survived raids from other unions. Local 1004 remains a distinct union from that of the inside workers, which are represented by the Greater Vancouver Regional District Employees' Union, but the two unions negotiated jointly in several major labour disputes, beginning in 1972. The union's recording secretary, Jack Phillips, and its Business Officer, Doln Guise, both served from 1947 to 1967 and were prominent in the union's activities.
