Labour Council advocates for all working people

For 40 years, the South Okanagan Boundary Labour Council has been the local voice of the Canadian Labour Congress.

Dear Editor:

For 40 years, the South Okanagan Boundary Labour Council has been the local voice of the Canadian Labour Congress.

As a chartered body of the CLC, we are hosting a celebration of this anniversary on Dec. 1.

We advocate for all working people, both union and non-union.

As a CLC organization, we represent workers of many unions, from Summerland to Osoyoos and from Princeton to Grand Forks.

Our work is funded by the dues paid by affiliated unions within this region.

The Labour Council works extensively with many community organizations, through affiliations, support and donations, such as food banks, the South Okanagan Women in Need Society, the Southern Interior United Way, Penticton Access Centre, the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan, the Soupateria in Penticton, and Discovery House, to name a few.

We will be celebrating our 40 years of labour solidarity and community work on Dec. 1 at Cowork, 125 Eckhardt Ave. E., Penticton, at 7 p.m.

We invite all past labour council presidents, executive and labour council members and all members of our affiliated unions.

If you can attend, please RSVP to info@soblc.ca.

For further information, visit our website at www.soblc.ca or our Facebook group.

Brent Voss, President
