Labour Day Barbeque

For almost three decades the Edmonton and District Labour Council has been holding our Labour Day BBQ for the unemployed and the underemployed in the beautiful Giovanni Caboto park in the heart of McCauley. Are goal has always been to draw attention to the needs of ALL EDMONTONIANS, lead them to existing services and pressure governments and decision makers to provide what is needed so everyone has a chance to achieve what they want in life.

This BBQ is a family friendly event with entertainment and activities for the young ones and of course LOTS OF BBQ! The EDLC invites everyone to the Annual Labour Day BBQ.

This years event will be their 29th BBQ and will be held on Monday September 4th, 2017 from 11:30am-3:30pm at Giovanni Caboto Park.

Hope to see you there!

19th Annual Big Splash Golf Tournament

The Edmonton & District Labour Council is once again planning its 19th Annual “Big Splash Open” Golf Tournament at the Raven Crest Golf Club on Saturday August 25th, 2018 co-sponsored by the United Nurses of Alberta and Unifor. As has been our practice in the past, we are using the Tournament as a fundraiser for the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region, with all of the funds raised going to the 2018 Campaign. In 2017 we raised nearly $10,000 and we are expecting this years tournament to draw up to 144 players. Cost is $125.00 per golfer. Shotgun start at 8:00am!

Take the Politics Out of Pensions!

As members of the Local Authorities Pension Plan (LAPP), you may recall back in 2013, when the former Progressive Conservative Provincial Government decided they would make changes to our LAPP pensions.  They proposed to legislate these changes to accomplish their goals.  Some of which included:

  • removing early retirement provisions
  • raising the minimum qualifying age
  • removing the automatic cost of living adjustments (COLA) built into the plan. read more
