The Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour is holding its fourth constitutional convention in St. John’s from Monday to Wednesday of this week at the Delta Hotel.

The convention, held every three years, bring together and represents 70,000 union members in more than 25 unions across the province who work in every sector of the economy.


NLFL President Mary Shortall said, "our convention serves as an important opportunity for union activists from across the province to come together to develop policy, hold elections, hear from guest speakers, and lay out a strategy for the labour movement’s efforts, for the challenges working people in this province face and will be facing in the future."


Delegates will hear from union leaders and special guests on such topics as workers’ rights, equity, just transition, health and safety, and the need for political activism.


The group will also march from the Delta to Harbourside Park where they will rally and hear speakers around the convention theme of Stronger Together.
