Dates of existence


The Transportation Employees Canadian Union traces its roots to the Brotherhood of Railway Running Trades Union which was registered in 1959 but changed its name to the TECU in 1971. The Union unsuccessfully sought to represent the members of all the running trades of the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railways. Its first president, Leslie N. Falle, attempted to separate the union from international control and to bring the existing 17 unions under a single charter. When it failed in that goal, the union ceased operations in the 1970s.
