As trade unionists work to defend and improve public services, to combat poverty and to make positive gains in our communities, we are strengthened through collaboration with others.
In 60 cities around the world, including Canada, the US, England and Australia, trade unionist have been successful in advancing important social issues through working together with faith and community organizations.

This model is now established in Vancouver through The Metro Vancouver Alliance, of which the Vancouver & District Labour Council is a founding member. MVA invites all trade unionists and their allies to a leadership workshop which will provide practical tools to broaden participation in your own unions, build power, and establish strong,
sustainable community alliances for our common good.
