Unifor is a general trade union in Canada, founded in 2013 as a merger of the Canadian Auto Workers and Communications, Energy and Paperworkers unions. The new union consists of 310,000 workers and associate members in industries ranging from manufacturing and media to forestry and fishing, and is the largest private sector union in Canada. In January 2018, the union left the Canadian trade union centre the Canadian Labour Congress to become independent.
