Who We Are

Local unions working together to build a better community.

Sault Ste Marie and District Labour Council covers a vast area in Northern Ontario our 12 union affiliates represent 35 locals representing approximately 12,000 workers. We collaborate with the Canadian Labour Congress and the Ontario Federation of Labour to collectively lobby for change for all workers.

We promote the interest of our affiliates, advances the economic state of the community, and promote social justice for all workers and their families, both working and retired. The Labour Council lobbies for fair labour legislation, promoting world peace and international solidarity and by encouraging the use and purchase of Union Made Products and Services within our community.

We are actively involved in both economic and social growth opportunities at the community level and encourage participation in local events, boards and committees to further our message. Through participation, we give labour issues a real voice in our community.
