Canadian Paperworkers Union : The Canadian Paperworkers Union was formed in 1974 when the Canadian region of the United Paperworkers International Union (UPIU) separated to form a Canadian national union. The UPIU itself was only two years old when the Canadian members departed, having been established by the 1972 merger of the International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill Workers (IBPSPMW) and the United Papermakers and Paperworkers (UPP). In 1987 the CPU had 57,000 members and 274 local unions in all regions of Canada: 65 locals in Atlantic Canada; 98 in Quebec; 78 in Ontario; 8 in the Prairie provinces; and 25 in British Columbia. In November 1992 the CPU merged with the Communications and Electrical Workers of Canada (CWC) and the Energy and Chemical Workers Union (ECWU) to form the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP). The CPU (later the pulp and paper sector of the CEP) was the largest union representing Canadian pulp and paper workers. There was an independent regional union in British Columbia, the Pulp, Paper and Woodworkers of Canada (formed c.1962 by dissident locals of the IBPSPMW). The Confédération des syndicats nationaux represented some Quebec pulp and paper workers. In 2013, the CEP merged with the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) to form Unifor.
