Peel Regional Labour Council
Welcomes New Members!
Labour Councils have a proud history of local community involvement and participation. We appreciate the important role that municipal governance plays in the lives of our members and their families. These priorities, developed through consultations with local community groups and unions, will make our communities a better place for everyone to work and live.http://www.canadianlabour.ca/action-center/municipality-matters
Infrastructure – Building vibrant thriving communities means smart planning and development with special consideration to how we care for our citizens and preserve our heritage.
Procurement – A made in Canada purchasing policy our city councils spend a huge portion of our taxes purchasing goods and services. Procurement is a powerful economic stimulus and should be a such.
Municipal Revenues and Taxation – From every tax dollar collected in Canada municipalities receive only 8 cents. To maintain local public services, municipalities need long-term, predictable stable funding.
A Living Wage: Fair Wages and Working Conditions – Wage inequality is the root of many social problems our communities confront on a daily basis.
Sustainability – The Green Agenda. Green jobs, green spaces, houses and buildings. City Council should implement a sustainability plan.
Education – Our children’s education is the foundation of a productive society. As provincial governments head into another round of cuts the underfunding of our school boards will continue. We need strong school trustees who will advocate. Limit class size, a new education funding formula, publicly funded and developed education.
The attached list are the Candidates that the Peel Regional Labour Council (PRLC) endorsed for Union Members Only, There are Locals within the Peel Region who has endorsed these candidates and other Candidates as well.
Irrespective of who has endorsed these Candidates, I think every organization has done its due diligence to ensure that these Cadidates has our values of Social Unionism.
As a Labour Movement we should ensure that our members are informed about these candidates and do whatever we can to help these candidates win, either by financial donation or by assisting with volunteers.
Your Locals will be receiving endorsement cards shortly, so please ensure they are handed out to your membership. Our 1st VP Jim McDowell has been arranging Labour Canvasses. So, if your membership is interested in volunteering, I would suggest you contact Jim so that the volunteers can be coordinated to have the greatest impact.
The issues facing our city impact all of us, which is why the Peel municipal elections, taking place are so important. We need representatives who will champion investment, public services and promote good jobs. On October 27, 2014, please vote for the candidates that truly reflect your priorities and that will work to make our city better.
