At seven minutes after noon on the last day of August, thousands of delegates in Toronto approved the formation of Unifor, a union for all Canadians.
Those delegates were, on Friday, members of their respective unions – the CAW and the CEP. At special conventions for each union on Friday the members approved a merger into Unifor.
Prior to the vote on the Unifor constitution the members of CAW and CEP had to be admitted into the new union as per the articles of the soon-to-be adopted Unifor constitution. Delegates, officers, staff and guests signed their founding member application forms as the new union became a legal entity. On Sept.1, everyone who signed an application will receive a founding member Unifor card.
