History

The Hamilton Trades and Labour Council was formed in 1888. It belonged to the larger Trades and Labour Congress of Canada. In 1939 the Trade and Labour Congress of Canada expelled all industrial unions. In September 1940 eleven international unions and the Steel Worker's Organizing Committee (later the United Steelworkers) affiliated to form the Canadian Congress of Labour (C.C.L.). These national events were reflected at the local level in Hamilton, Ont. by the formation in 1941 of the Hamilton Labour Council C.C.L. National unification of the Trade and Labour Congress of Canada and the Canadian Congress of Labour was followed on the local level by the merger of the Hamilton Trades and Labour Council with the Hamilton Labour Council to form the Hamilton and District Labour Council in 1956. Further information on the history of the Hamilton and District Labour Council can be found in the master file.
