A Collective Community Voice

The Ottawa and District Labour Council (ODLC) currently represents over 90 union locals comprised of approximately 55,000 union members. As the central labour body in the city of Ottawa the ODLC provides a valuable opportunity for delegates from affiliated locals to gather and exchange information and extend mutual support. It is the role of the council to represent the interests of workers in the community.
