The VDLC supports the extension of voting rights to permanent residents. At our April 2019 regular meeting we adopted the following recommendation endorsing the #LostVotesYVR campaign which is campaigning to achieve this reform in the City of Vancouver.
The VDLC supports UNITE HERE Local 40, and the 90 YVR workers who are facing job losses due to contact flipping. We need successorship language to protect workers in all industries in the BC Labour Relations Code.
Elections for the Vancity Credit Union Board of Directors are currently taking place. This year the Vancouver and District Labour Council is please to endorse our own President, Stephen Von Sychowski, for the Board!
