The Winnipeg Labour Council (WLC) is this region's "House of Labour", or central labour body. Just as workers unite in a union to protect their rights, union locals unite in the Labour Council to further their aims and objectives. The WLC promotes the goals of the labour movement in Winnipeg at the municipal level.
Since it was founded in 1894, the Labour Council has served and represented workers in Winnipeg. A history of the first hundred years of the Winnipeg Labour Council is the subject of a booklet, which you can download here in PDF format (35 pages, 630 kb).
The Labour Council's 73 affiliated union locals reflect the whole spectrum of organized labour in Canada. Public and private sector, clerical, service and industrial workers join together through the Labour Council to give a voice to their concerns. Read More..
