Formed in 1952, CLAC (Christian Labour Association of Canada) is a national union representing over 60,000 workers in almost every sector of the economy. Based on values of respect, dignity, and fairness, CLAC is committed to building better workplaces, better communities, and better lives. CLAC is an affiliated member of the World Organization of Workers.
Building better workplaces
CLAC is a union that was founded on the belief that people, businesses, and work communities flourish when workplaces are based on cooperation and mutual respect—when we work with each other, not against each other.
In the face of intense adversity from unions that saw workplaces as war zones, our founders set out to create a different kind of labour union.
Our commitment to building positive workplace communities and seeking win-win solutions still guides us today.
Welcome to a different kind of union. Welcome to CLAC.
