Established in 2004, CMAW is a union that puts organizing, labour and human rights, social unionism, and ongoing worker education at the very top of its agenda. As it states on their website: "Every day we stand up for workers – both union and non-union – in many occupations. We have offices in every region of BC and our officials are elected by members "off the tools" from some of BC's largest industries including construction, the public sector, forestry and manufacturing. We fight for workplace justice every day."
