The Calgary & District Labour Council
Today, the CDLC is working with our community partners to maintain and strengthen health care, the public education system, and to protect our social programs.
These things effect every person, union or non-union both working and unemployed. Labour activists volunteer their time in many aspects to build stronger and more caring communities. We do this by fighting for equal access to quality social programs and public services and decent jobs and standard of living for everyone.
Together, we are working to close the growing gap between the rich and poor in our society.
