International Longshore & Warehouse Union (ILWU)
The International Longshore and Warehouse Union Canada has been successfully representing working people in British Columbia since 1948. ILWU Canada is the exclusive bargaining agent for over 3,000 men and women throughout the province.
The ILWU Canada is a union made up of the 11 autonomous Locals of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, and three affiliates: the Retail Wholesale Union (British Columbia), the Retail Wholesale Department Store Union (Saskatchewan), and the Grain Services Union (Saskatchewan). We represent our members in numerous forums of interest on the Federal, Provincial and Municipal scenes.
