Greater Victoria Labour Relations Association


Greater Victoria Labour Relations Association ('GVLRA') is a public sector employer's bargaining agency designed to use its collective strength as leverage in order to obtain the best possible results for taxpayers. By acting in a collective and coordinated way, members of the GVLRA minimize the effects of union whipsawing that often produce uncompetitive and fiscally unsound agreements.

The GVLRA also acts as a buffer zone between the pressures of lobbying by labour organizations and the economic interests of taxpayers. This arms length relationship allows public officials to have a common voice with other agencies on general compensation matters while, at the same time, ensuring that their individual financial priorities are not compromised by political pressure.
