About Us

Labour Council meetings and activities are opportunities to share information on issues affecting local unions, their membership and the community. By identifying issues, awareness is built and support can be generated through collective action.

The Labour Council is a full partner with the United Way with five members appointed to the United Way Board of Directors. Through our partnership agreement with the United Way local unions can access the services of the Labour Community Representative.

The Labour Council shapes the local political landscape by adding labour’s voice to issues that effect union’s members. As a voice for progressive change, social and economic justice, equality and workers’ rights, the Labour Council plays a significant role in supporting labour candidates or progressive candidates who share labours’ views.

Regular meetings of the SDLC are at 7:00 pm on the 4th Thursday of the month except July, August and December, in the OPSEU Union Hall 866 Newgate Avenue,  Sudbury.
