Beverage Workers Rising is a campaign of SEIU Local 2. We represent over 18,000 essential workers in Ontario, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Alberta. We are proud members of the largest, fastest-growing and most dynamic union in North America.
The Union began its history as Local 304 of the International Union of Brewery, Flour, Cereal, Soft Drink and Distillery Workers when it received its charter to represent brewery workers in Toronto in 1902. The Union has grown in both number and character since that date and is one of the fastest-growing unions in Canada.
Today over 2,000 of our members are in the beverages sector and that number is growing. Learn more about the Branches and Bargaining Units they are in below.
