Welcome to the Peel Regional Labour Council Website!

The Labour movement was created by people standing up together for fair wages, safe workplace, benefits, pension plan, and decent work hours. Many of the benefits and standards won for our members are enjoyed by all workers today, such as minimum wage, health and safety regulations, and overtime, etc.

Having a Union on your side makes your job and workplace safer and fairer. You get paid better and are more likely to have benefits that help you balance work with life at home. Your health and ability to do your job become important and your right for fair treatment gets enforced.

But this advantage doesn’t just belong to Union members. It benefits everyone.

Workers in unions are an important part of the local community and economy because that’s where they spend their pay cheques. Their income support local businesses (who create local jobs) and bolster the local tax base, which supports public works and community services that add to everyone’s quality of life.

It is our mission that this website will provide you with information, services, and resources for all our members in our community.
We encourage you to visit our online sit regularly to find out about the latest Union news and upcoming events. As a member, you have the responsibility to stay connected, attend monthly meetings and events. Together, let us build a fairer workplace!
