Welcome to the New Westminster & District Labour Council website.
The New Westminster & District Labour Council (NWDLC) is a community-based central labour organization representing trade union members at the local level. We are a chartered organization of the Canadian Labour Congress, Canada’s national voice for workers and their families.
Our goal is to ensure our communities and our elected representatives at all levels of government in Canada respond to the needs of people and families.
The NWDLC is joining with the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) in launching a campaign to pressure the federal and provincial governments to provide emergency operating funding for municipalities in order to protect the vital local services we all need.
Please sign and share this petition with all your members, local activists, allies and contacts. The petition can be found at this link: https://canadianlabour.ca/campaigns/cities-need-help/
