Bob White was a prominent leader in the Canadian trade union and labour movement and served as the first President of the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) for 3 terms. After his time with CAW he was then elected President of the Canadian Labour Congress.
He always had the people’s best interest in mind. “His ability to stand up and do what’s right for working men and women set a new standard for labour leaders,” Chris Taylor, Unifor Local 200 President.
He will be remembered as a labour leader with a heart of gold. He was a “pioneer of the labour movement” and a role model for many.
