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.
NWDLC issues Giving Tuesday challenge to Community Savings CU!
The NWDLC has committed to raising money for the purchase of 60 cases of protein in support of the Union Protein Project as 2019’s Labour Gives action for Giving Tuesday. After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a movement to give back in our communities, and this year we are challenging Community Savings Credit Union to join us in a little friendly giving competition! Our challenge calls on CEO and President Mike Schilling to rally his folks to match the generosity of our delegates and local unions in support of food banks in our region! We all win when we support Union Protein Project, Food Banks, and families in need in our communities. Check back here for updates between now and December 5!
UPDATE! Thanks to the generosity of our amazing delegates and CUPE Locals 454 and 1760, IAMAW LL764, IBB D385 and to HEU RCH Local who also challenged other HEU Locals to meet or beat their $100 donation, we have doubled our goal and will purchase 120 cases of peanut butter for food banks in our region! Thanks to Community Savings for this great challenge!
