Strategic Plan

The Labour Council is coming up to its 150th anniversary.  Eery day, our Council works to build a society based on social, economic, racial, and climate justice.  We have survived through tough times and won victories that have made real improvements in people’s lives.  None of those victories came easily—we had to combine skillful strategic thinking with membership engagement and a conscious alliance policy.  In the next three years, we will need to draw on all our experience and resilience to weather new challenges.

The Labour Council is in the final stages of establishing the 2019-2022 Strategic Plan, which will be made available here when complete.
