To represent the interests of Association members and building trades-signatory contractors, professionally and with integrity, in matters of labour relations and human resource management.
To provide leadership necessary to secure, for the benefit of Association members and their employees, a labour-management environment which will afford them the opportunity for long term viability and success.
Construction Labour Relations Association of BC was established in 1969 with the objective of bringing labour relations stability and security to contractors in BC’s unionized construction sector. Today, CLR continues to provide a unified voice that is essential to negotiating the most favourable agreements for its members and the industry.
In addition to Labour Relations, CLR has expanded its mandate to include a full range of Health & Safety products and services. Human Resources services continue to grow as well, including the Better SuperVision program for construction foremen and supervisors, and administration of a Drug & Alcohol testing program.
CLR is governed by a board of directors comprised of 13 member contractors, plus a council of approximately 65 contractors representing all trade sectors within the Association and all geographical regions of the province – providing them the opportunity of participating in Association policy-making or industry negotiations.
