The International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE) is a non-profit employee-based organization, made up of autonomous local affiliates, such as SCMMA, TEAM, The Society of United Professionals, and many more.
IFPTE advocates on behalf of more than 80,000 women and men in professional and technical occupations both in Canada and in the United States.
Unique within labour, most of IFPTE members' occupations are primarily white-collar, including all engineering disciplines, a wide variety of scientific and research professions, lawyers and administrative judges, economists, environmental officers, and urban planners, among others, all within the private, public, and federal sectors.
A number of independent unions and associations have found IFPTE a great way to join the larger labour community while providing additional resources to their members. Not only is IFPTE structured to ensure locals have autonomy over their governance and finances, it also allows for the sharing of resources, like staff, while greatly increasing their advocay and outreach within an ewtowkr of other organized professionals among the IFPTE communiy.
