The Laborers’ District Council of the Metropolitan Area of Philadelphia and Vicinity (LDC) was chartered in 1937 to enhance, promote and conserve the welfare and interest of their members and themselves. The local laborers’ unions in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area and the surrounding four counties – Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery – deemed it necessary and advantageous to combine their economic power, effort and strength into a single, unified entity.

The objectives of the LDC are to promote unity of action in dealing with employers; to coordinate and consolidate the activities of its local unions in support of common interests; to foster harmony and united action between affiliated local unions; to maintain uniformity in the conduct of the business of its affiliated local unions located in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area; to protect and conserve the jurisdiction allotted to it by the international union and to organize the unorganized.
