he British Columbia Federation of Labour speaks for the over 500,000 members of our affiliated unions, from more than 1,100 locals, working in every aspect of the BC economy.
The BCFED, as it is most commonly known, has a long and proud history of fighting for the rights of all working people. The Federation celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2006, but in fact there was also a B.C. Federation of Labour in the early part of this century when unions were first created.
The goals of the BCFED are best exemplified by its slogan: "What we desire for ourselves, we wish for all."
The B.C. Federation of Labour's primary goal is to speak on behalf of and provide resources to its affiliated unions. In doing so, the Federation puts forward the interests of union members across the province to government, employers and the general public.
The Federation is a member of the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) and works with the CLC to further the interests of working people across the country.
