Labour Councils are the foundation of the labour movement and a key component of the social fabric within any community. The Labour Council plays a very important role in providing a social conscience and a powerful voice for working class citizens.
Labour Councils have the ability to organize collectively around issues that affect us every day, as well as provide support to both the organized and the unorganized alike. Through the volunteer work of unionized women and men, the Labour Council creates a way for workers to improve the quality of life in the community in which they live and work.
