South Coast Labor Council (1927 - 1929)

Online ResourcesArchival Resources

Formed in 1943 as the Illawarra District Trades & Labor Council, this body of union representatives sought to advocate the rights and conditions of workers in and around Wollongong. Indeed, although based in Wollongong, the Council's influence extended right throughout the South Coast of New South Wales. As if to reflect this, the Council changed names in 1949 to become the South Coast Labor Council. Never just concerned with wages and conditions, the South Coast Labor Council involved itself in many social issues of the times, such as, for example, immigration, medical benefits, Indigenous Australians, peace movements and the environment.
