Biographical history

The Food and Service Workers of Canada Union (FASWOC) was created in 1958 as the White Spot Employees Union. In 1968 the White Spot Company was purchased by General Foods Ltd. and the Union changed its name to Canadian Food and Associated Service Union (CFUSA) in 1972 and joined the Canadian Council of Unions in 1973. After organizing locals in two provinces, British Columbia and Ontario, the union changed its name to the Food and Service Workers of Canada Union in 1981. At the time of its merger with the Canadian Association of Industrial, Mechanical and Allied Workers (CAIMAW) in 1987, FASWOC represented nineteen White Spot Restaurants, forty-seven Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants, and other employees in British Columbia.
