Biographical history

The Vancouver, New Westminster and District Union Label Trades Council was organized in 1939. The objectives of the Council were to promote a greater demand for products bearing the union label and for labour performed by union workers. Activities were promoted on a national scale with the creation of the Union Label Trade Department of the Canadian Labour Congress, in 1956. The Council was superceded by the British Columbia Union Label Trades Council in 1980.
