The Canadian Brotherhood of Railroad Employees was first formed in 1908. The Smithers Branch (Div. No. 93) was started in September 22, 1926 and covered members from Endako to New Hazelton. The first meeting was held at the Smithers’ Canadian National Railway Station, where Normal Kilpatrick presided as President, and R.W. Champion as Secretary. Later the Canadian Brotherhood of Railroad Employees became the Canadian Brotherhood of Railway Transport and General Workers. The Smithers Branch existed until 1994 when the Canadian Brotherhood of Railway Transport and General Workers amalgamated with the Union of Canadian Auto Workers.
