The Union

Unifor Local 333 BC

Unifor Local 333BC represents Greater Victoria bus drivers, mechanics, maintenance and other workers at BC Transit, as well as handyDART, Oak Transit and Medi-Van drivers, attendants and staff.

Our union’s total 800 members in the four bargaining units are part of Canada’s new union called Unifor.

Unifor Local 333BC is a union that is responsible to its members for bargaining collective agreements, pursuing workplace grievances, enforcing and promoting health and safety in the workplace and representing the best interests of union members in other ways.

Your union also takes public positions in support of members in the media and takes your concerns to elected government officials and staff at the municipal, provincial and federal level.

Unifor Local 333BC is the public voice for its member and believes it is essential to get our message out to maintain public support for the important transit and transportation services our members deliver.

Unifor – our new national union

Unifor is a new union for everyone.

It is Canada’s largest private sector union, with more than 300,000 members across the country, working in every major sector of the Canadian economy.

Unifor brings a modern approach to unionism: adopting new tools, involving and engaging our members, and always looking for new ways to develop the role and approach of our union to meet the demands of the 21st century.

Unifor’s Mission

Unifor strives to protect the economic rights of our members and every member of the workforce (employed or unemployed).

We are committed to building the strongest and most effective union to bargain on behalf of our members, working with our members to improve their rights in the workplace, and extending the benefits of unions to non-unionized workers and other interested Canadians.

Unifor’s History

Unifor was officially formed on August 31, 2013. It marked the coming together of the Canadian Auto Workers union (CAW) and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP) – two of Canada’s largest and most influential labour unions.
