Name of creator
The International Union of Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers (IUE-CIO) held its first annual convention, 25-6 October 1952, in Guelph, Ont. It was affiliated with the IUE in the United States which had been founded in 1949. The union members in Canada formed part of District Five until 1965 when the district was renamed the Canadian District. The IUE Canadian District merged with the Communications Workers of Canada (CWC) in 1983. The new organization was called the Communications, Electronic, Electrical and Technical Workers of Canada. In 1985 the name was changed to the Communications and Electrical Workers of Canada; in 1992 the name became the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada as a result of a merger with the Canadian Paperworkers Union and the Energy and Chemical Workers of Canada.
