CAW Local 2216 - chartered December 13, 1988

CAW Local 2216 was chartered on Dec 13,1988.

Previous to that we belonged to the Meat Cutters & Butchers Workers Union of North America, which later became the UFCW.

We later merged with Local 1252 of the fisherman's union, known as the FFAW-CAW. During the merger our members decided they wanted their own local union and voted to do so - becoming CAW Local 2216, an amalgamated local union.

Our local union serves mostly workers in the poultry industry.

We have also expanded our local to include DRL Transit, Eastern Protein Foods, Scotia Farm Services, Co-Op Atlantic, Evangline Motors and ACA Sanitation.
