Name of creator
The BC Carpenters' Central America Solidarity Committee was formed by the trade unionists of the BC Provincial Council of Carpenters (the BC Carpenters' Union).
The non-profit Canada-Nicaragua Carpentry Training Centre in Estelé, Nicaragua, sometimes referred to as "the Carpenters' Project," was established in 1985 as a joint effort between the BC Provincial Council of Carpenters and the Carpenters’ Union of Nicaragua.
During the mid-1980s, groups of BC trade unionists travelled to Nicaragua. These trips were hosted by the Sandinista Trade Union Centre (CST), endorsed by the BC Federation of Labour, and arranged by the Trade Union Group of the BC-Nicaragua Solidarity Committee. These trips resulted in reports on the labour situation in Nicaragua titled "Hope Under Siege" and "Surviving the Siege."
This project was done in cooperation with CUSO, an independent international development agency, and was affiliated with "Tools for Peace," a Canadian organisation devoted to maintaining solidarity with and providing material support to the people of Nicaragua during the 1980s.
