MNL has been working with sector stakeholders for a number of years to create the Municipal Safety Council of Newfoundland and Labrador.
MNL represents the interests of the growing number of municipal councils in the province. Today there are 276 incorporated municipalities representing 89 percent of the provincial population. Over 97 percent of these councils are paying members of MNL and drive our considerable advocacy and policy efforts.
MNL’s interest in being a partner of MSCNL is representative of the municipal members concern for occupational health and safety environment in which they work.
Sheila Fitzgerald, MSCNL Vice-Chair
The Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour has been representing the interests of union member and workers since 1936. The Federation of Labour is made up of nearly 30 affiliated unions, 500 locals and six District Labour Councils. We represent more than 65,000 working women and men from every sector of our economy and form every community in our province.
The NLFL advocates for improved workplace rights and stronger laws including occupational health and safety laws. It is our desire to see all our workers go home to their families at the end of a safe workday that has driven us to be a founding partner in MSCNL
