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.
It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Executive Board member, NWDLC Political Action Co-Chair and New Westminster Secondary School teacher Brother Pat Dyer. His compassion, activism, commitment to the work of our Labour Council and sense of fun will be sorely missed.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, December 15th, 2018 and will take place from 1 to 3 pm, at the Operating Engineer’s Hall – 4333 Ledger Ave, Burnaby. Our dear friend and colleague passed away suddenly November 13th, 2018. There is an optional Hawaiian shirt theme, as Pat preferred them.
