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.
PROVINCIAL ELECTION UPDATE
At our September regular meeting the delegates and Executive Board of the New Westminster & District Labour Council passed a motion to endorse all of the BC NDP candidates in our region in the Provincial Election.
We appreciate the hard work of Premier Horgan and the BC NDP team for all of their work on behalf of working people and families after 16 years of BC Liberal neglect and mismanagement. It is critical that union members and working people get active in the election. Please see below for a list of the provincial EDA’s in our region:
