The British Columbia Federation of Labour represents more than half a million workers through affiliated unions in more than 800 locals, working in every aspect of the BC economy.
Established in 1956 the “B.C. Fed”, as it is most commonly known, has a long and proud history of fighting for the rights of all working people. The goals of the Federation are best exemplified by its slogan: “What we desire for ourselves, we wish for all.”
The B.C. Federation of Labour brings together the majority of unions in BC to provide a single voice on workers’ rights. As well, the Federation provides support to affiliated unions during labour disputes and co-ordinates cross-union campaigns from health and safety to political action and women’s rights.
The Federation is a member of the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) and works with it to further the interests of working people across the country.
