Labour Councils bring union members from different labour unions together, at the community level. Members of unions who join the South Okanagan Labour Council work at almost every type of job. You can find them in offices, supermarkets, factories, forests, the media, construction sites, hospitals, schools, libraries, City Halls, up a hydro pole, driving city buses and Greyhound, and even Starbucks at Penticton’s Safeway.
We are affiliated to the BC Federation of Labour and we are a chartered member of the Canadian Labour Congress and work closely with 5 other southern Interior Labour Councils.
We host the annual International Workers Day at Gyro Park on the first Saturday in May and you´ll find us at Gyro Park on Canada Day.
We lobby our Members of Parliament, and Members of the Legislative Assembly to keep them in tuned with community and workers issues that have federal or provincial implications.
