Uniting labour in our community

Executive

The 17 member elected VDLC executive is made up of delegates from labour council affiliates in both the public and private sectors. The president is a full time position, while others hold jobs where their union is certified.

The executive meets monthly to oversee the work of the labour council and recommend motions to monthly delegate meetings. Executive members also chair VDLC committees, participate in the council’s activities and mentor new activists. Meetings are also attended by the assigned representative from the Canadian Labour Council.

Eligibility for election is detailed in Section 6 of the VDLC Constitution.

President is the only full-time officer at the VDLC
