    Administrative history

    In 1891, the Federated Association of Letter Carriers, a Canadian labour union, formed. Branch 14 of the Association was organized circa 1903 in Edmonton.

    In 1966, the Union became the Letter Carriers Union of Canada (LCUC) and the Branch became known as Letter Carriers Union, Local 14. In 1989, the Union joined the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.

    Fifty two thousand members now divide into 210 locals throughout Canada representing regions in Halifax, Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, London, Winnipeg and Vancouver.
