Municipal Elections 2018

Municipal governments have a profound impact on the day-to-day lives of workers and their families and on the communities they work and live in. That’s why Canada’s unions are working hard to build strong, productive relationships between unions and local governments: we know that by working together we can build stronger and economically vibrant communities.

Our Stronger Communities Together campaign lays the groundwork for that mission by supporting candidates who share our values and objectives.

  • We choose the communities where we know we can make a difference.
  • We find, train and endorse candidates who share our values and objectives.
  • We train campaign workers.
  • We provide communications support to campaigns.
  • We get out the vote.

Over the next few months, the Waterloo Regional Labour Council will be endorsing candidates for municipal office and school boards throughout our region. Members of the local labour community are encouraged to support our endorsed candidates during the election period and at the ballot box.
