Administrative history

Formed in 1919, the Provincial Civil Service Association of B.C. was the first organization of B.C. government workers. It was followed by the B.C. Government Employees' Association (BCGEA), founded in 1942; it changed its name to the B.C. Government Employees' Union in 1969. The BCGEU gained full bargaining rights under the BC Labour Code in 1974. The BCGEU changed its name again in 1993 to the B.C. Government and Service Employees' Union, to reflect its expanding non-government membership base.
