Dates of existence


The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 213 was formed in 1901. The following year, women telephone operaters were organized into an auxiliary of 213, one of the first successful attempts at organizing women workers in British Columbia. Strained relations between the local and its international headquarters were marked by such events as the suspension of its charter in 1919 and allegations of communist sympathies in the 1950s.
